Germaben II - If you are making lotions, and you wish to keep your lotions nice and creamy without mold and other nasties growing in your creations, you need Germaben II. Germaben is a mixture of propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, and propylparaben. It is meant to be used as .3 to 1.0% of the total weight of your lotion. Germaben II needs to be at a temperature of 140F degrees or below to effectively inhibit mold and bacterial growth.
Bramble Berry strongly recommends making lotions by weight, with a scale. However, we recognize that some of our customers have other methods of manufacturing lotions. Here is the exact weight to volume conversion if you prefer to make your lotions without a scale.
INCI: Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Methylparaben (and) Propylparaben
.1 oz by weight = .082 US fluid ounces = 2.42502943 ml
