  • Tocopherol and Rosemary usage amounts? - Lip Balm

    Hi all, 

    I am looking for usage amounts for Tocopherol and Rosemary Oleoresin in my lip balm to help prevent it from going rancid. What % should each be at? I’m finding conflicting information online.

    you can add Tocopherol at 0.2% to 0.3% and Rosemary Oleoresin at 0.05% to 0.1% and you’ll be fine.

    @MarkBroussard, thank you, I will be trying that in my formulations. I will need to wait several months to see how the products age.
