I've been surfing the net and noticed several different lotion, etc recipes listed with borax as an ingredient. Is that good? I looked at an on-line dictionary and I got more confused. Any opinion?

I've read that borax is an emulsifier (binds oils and water together) so maybe that's why? I would think it would make the lotion Ph fairly alkaline, depending on the amount you used. In most reputable recipes ewax is used for emulsification. The only thing I use borax in is my Liquid soap.
