1% of the weight is a general rule - but every preservative is different so check with the manufacturer. They also may have temperature variances, etc. so know your preservative.


Yes, you can use too much. More is not always better.

It's best to have your lotion recipe tested to see if the preservative is working at least once and then follow very strict sanitary procedures when making and packaging your lotions.

I use Phenonip which actually is better put in things at a higher temp (150-170) to insure dissolving into the product. They also reccomend adding half to the oil phase and half to the liquid phase as well.

This demonstrates that every preservative is different.
