Overview of Natural Preservatives - a Free E-Book

Lise

NaturalPreservatives-Free-E-Book.jpg

There are so many people who have asked me and my colleague Rebecca Wright about natural preservatives : which are the best, most recommended or most suitable to use?

We wish we could give you a one-size-fits-all answer, but choosing the right preservative is always formula specific. Rebecca and I both recommend studying manufacturer information before deciding which preservative to choose.

To this end, we have complied a free E-book of manufacturer information and pertinent articles about natural preservation. Click the button to download your free copy.

Snowy Coconut Cream Bars

This year has been full of projects - one of which you see pictured above. It has been a blast working on developing all the shampoo bar for the latest book with my colleague Rebecca Wright.

And I find it only fitting to share a bit of snowiness with you in this wintery month, so here’s the whitest, coco-nuttiest shampoo bar from the book: Coconut Cream Shampoo Bars.

These were developed with a nod to steady customer of mine who is in love with anything coconut. I’ve already wrapped up a couple and tied a pretty red bow on the package.

Shh! Holiday secret!

Ho Ho Ho!

The formula for this shampoo bar is in the latest publication Make Your Own Naturally Balanced Shampoo Bars.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Rebecca Wright, a colleague from Formulators Kitchen on this publication, and it has resulted in a series of preservative free, naturally pH balanced shampoo bar formulas with a little something for every taste.

We hope you enjoy making and using the shampoo bars in this book.

If you are a bit of a green-thinking purist and are up for making your own 100% botanical deodorants using easy-to-source ingredients, you might find this book useful.

Not only does the book contain 3 deodorant formulas, but there are over 35 additional personal care products you can make – every one preservative free yet with a shelf life of months.

The best part? You can make every product in the book with a grand total of 21 ingredients.

Soothing Oat Balm with Ground Oats

Lise

I've had a couple of questions about the soothing oat balm in this book: "Can't I use my own ground oats instead of colloidal oatmeal in this balm?"

You can, but you will not get a smooth balm. Pictured below; a small batch I made up to show you what happens.

Even though the balm looks grainy, it goes on surprisingly smoothly and melts right in, so if you can live with the lumpy look, then go for it!

Can Cleansing Oil Cleanse? (hint: yes)

Lise

Cleansing oil sounds a bit like an oxymoron. One cleanses the skin to remove oils, right?

There is a method to using a cleansing oil that leaves the skin cleansed and refreshed. The latest publication in the shop includes formulas for cleansing oils as well as a complete instruction on how to use them. 

If you're not ready to try a cleansing oil just yet, there are also numerous other cleansers in the book.
