Product Description Optiphen Plus is a preservative that’s both paraben and formaldehyde free. Preservatives are a must in any formulation that uses water. Otherwise, your lotions, conditioners, and more can develop mold or bacteria that will spoil your product and could have health impacts for users. As a broad spectrum preservative, Optiphen Plus is effective against bacteria, yeasts, and molds. It can be used in both oil-water emulsions and water-oil emulsions. Optiphen Plus is a versatile preservative, effective for any emulsified skincare or hair care project with a slightly acidic pH. Ensuring that your products are safe is a big priority. Try Optiphen Plus in your next batch.
