Add to cold or hot water phase, do not wait before mixing as this may result in a slight gelling effect which will prevent full solubilization and result in cloudiness.  

Use levels between 1.0% and 1.5%.in your water phase.  ie 2 to 2.5 teaspoons per liter of lotion. Not suitable for use in anhydrous formula (due to incompatibility)

INCI: Gluconodeltalactone (and) Sodium Benzoate

PLEASE NOTE: In combination with ascorbic acid (vitamin C, E300), sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate may form benzene, a known carcinogen.

A natural preservative that is a combination of a naturally occurring food additive glucono delta lactone, derived from corn, and a food grade preservative sodium benzoate, the sodium salt of benzoic acid, along with a trace amount of calcium gluconate as a processing agent. The perfect solution to those challenging emulsions that you have tried and tried to convert, from liquapar and germaben, to more natural preservatives only to have them separate a month later. Because it is provided in powder form it will not jeopardize stability like most of the other natural or alternative preservatives.

The icing on the cake is being able to go back to adding your preservative to the water phase and simplify the cooling process...no more thinking that your emulsion was perfect when it cooled only to find that once you added the preservative it completely changed the texture and viscosity.

We recommend that you optimize (determine through interval testing the lowest effective dose) your preservative levels because all of the successful trials were done at use levels between 1.0% and 1.5%.

    Would it work with Vit. C PWD/Ascorbyl Palmitate?

    From our experience this combination turns the product orange. We do not recommend it.
