Potassium sorbate is a synthetic product that mimics the natural molecule. It is in every way identical to the natural potassium sorbate. Its manufacture is ecological and its use without danger, provided that the dosage is respected. The use of synthetic potassium sorbate is more ecological than the manufacture of potassium sorbate stemming 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 the sorbate of synthetic potassium as a "natural" product. This is why he ranks in natural conservatives, despite his synthetic nature. The choice to use it or not is personal :) To souls, we consider that it is a clean, safe, reliable, healthy curator for us and for the environment.

Properties : Antifungal, antibacterial

Use : Conservative in the formulas containing an aqueous phase

Use : Any product containing an aqueous phase and whose pH is between 2.0 and 6.5

Concentration: From 0.15 to 0.3% if used alone or from 0.1 to 0.2% if it is combined with another preservative. Often uses sodium benzoate, but can also be used alone with a stable aqueous phase.

Solubility: Potassium sorbate releases sorbic acid, its active ingredient, in water. Solid in cold water.

Appearance : Underdooly white powder or granules

pH: Effective at pH located between 2.0 and 6.5 

*Face creams require a pH of 5. For eye contour creams, the pH of which must be ideally 7, use the Dermasoft Pentiol Eco.

To know...

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.

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 the potassium sorbate, 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).
