A friend gave me a face cream to try, along with the recipe. I really like the feeling on my face when I use it ..makes my skin nice and soft even up to a full day after I use it. Here's where I am stuck! I set out to make some myself and the ingredient used to bind the oils and water together is borax. To me this is a cleaning agent, not?? Is it safe to use it in a lotion for my skin? PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP ME OUT HERE?
Thank you to whomever takes time to help :)

In the olden days, borax and beeswax were used as an emulsifier. However, a product made with these is not shelf stable.
Borax in a face cream may cause irritation or a possible allergy.
E-wax NF is a complete emulsifier. I would use that instead.
Borax in the laundry is used to soften the water and make diapers softer.
