I wanted to get some of your opinions about preservatives. I recently read a post on Soap Queen about the use of preservatives in creams, lotions and scrubs. There was a photo of some cream that had gone moldy! Anyway the preservatives they suggest are Phenonip or Optiphen.
Phenonip is made up of parabens. The Optiphen has Phenoxyethanol. Are there any natural preservatives that are as effective?
