I am ignorant in the art of lotion making. I am interested in trying my hand at it. I read the generous information given at the top of this section of the forum. I didn't get my question answered. Out of all the preservatives out there for lotion making, which is the best? When you make your lotion which do you prefer?



Has anyone tried any products from aquatech? I was wondering how they worked?

I am right there with ya, very new. Only made 2 batches of lotion, using Germaben II. Have had no problems. Google the names of the major preservatives and read reviews - you'll come across the shortcomings.

This site is fabulous for lotion noobs: http://swiftcraftymonkey.blogspot.com/

See the sidebar for a preservative comparison chart.

There is no "best". It depends more on which ingredients ie: oils, butters or emulsifiers you use and at what % as opposed to water.
Some are temp sensitive, some are pH sensitive. I use Germall Plus for my lotions.
