To help keep your lotions fresh and growth-free, you will need a preservative.
Use Germaben II at a rate of 1% for all your lotions that have less than 25% oil in them. Germaben II is a complete preservative, no need to add additional preservatives to your mixture. It can be used in shampoos and conditioners too.
Germaben II contains:
- propylene glycol 56%
- diazolidinyl urea 30%
- methylparaben 11%
- propylparaben 3%
Use Germaben II when making emulsions that have 25% oil or less. If you need assistance with how much oil your mixture has, you can contact our technical department for help. You will need your complete formula (in weight only, no volume recipes will be reviewed) at hand to discuss with our technical staff.
