WSP Questions And Answers

"I read on your site, and another site that extracts and powdered ingredients are more difficult to preserve. But the amount of preservative used is always calculated by the total weight of the product with no mention of adding more because an extract or powdered botanical was used. Is it safe to calculate the preservative by the weight of the product regardless of the ingredients used? If not, how would you calculate it?"
