Sizes : 25 g, 100 g and 250 g Bulk size : 1 kg
Also known as NEODEFEND.
White powder composed of 75% gluconolactone (Ester of gluconic acid obtained by the fermentation of corn) and 25% of sodium benzoate (sodium salt of benzoic, synthetic acid).
The Ultra Geoguard is a synthetic product that mimics natural molecules. It is in every way identical to the natural version. Its manufacture is ecological thus its safe use, provided that the dosage is respected. The use of ultra -synthetic geoguard is more ecological than the manufacture of molecules directly from nature, as this would require large amounts of organic matter. This is a process that would not be really viable or possible, given the quantities used. For all these reasons, some still consider it as a "natural" product. This is why he ranks in natural conservatives, despite his synthetic nature. The choice of using it or not is personal :) To souls, we consider that it is a clean, safe, reliable, healthy curator for us and for the environment. Approved by Écocert. Gluten or GMO.
INCI : Glucoonolactone (and) sodium benzoate
Solubility: Soluble in water. This preservative tolerates heat well and it can be long to dissolve.
pH: Efficient in formulas containing water with a pH between 3.0 and 6.0.
*Face creams require a pH of 5. For eye contour creams, the pH of which must be ideally 7, use the Pentylene Glycol.
Properties : Antifungal, antibacterial
Use : Can be used alone as a preservative. Should be added to the aqueous phase at the start of the recipe or in the cooling phase. If it is added to the cooling phase of an emulsion, dissolve the powder in water before adding it to the recipe.
Note that water without water do not require a curator. However, you will have the advantage of using an antioxidant, such as thevitamin E oil. It slows down fat, but is not a preservative.
Concentration: From 0.75% to 2%
Uses: For any product containing an aqueous phase
We recommend avoiding infusions and favoring aloe gel (which already contains a preservative), distilled water and hydrosols. According to the chemists, the latter are not stable, but we are herbalists, and we love the hydrosols! These can keep a good year or more. Which is rather stable for water. With hydrosols in the aqueous phase, an emulsion h/e is kept, thanks to sodium benzoate, about a year, which is very acceptable to us. We prefer to make living products that keep for a few months rather than dead products that remain stable for years!
ATTENTION : Hold out of the reach of children. /Do not swallow or inhale and avoid contact with the eyes. /Respect the recommended dosage. / Always do an allergy test on the forearm (finished product test).
