Country Of Origin: United States



This product is not on the CA Prop 65 list of toxic chemicals.

This product conforms to the reporting requirements of California Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986). We are conforming to the regulation by reporting the existence, or lack thereof, of ingredients deemed reportable by the above mentioned regulations via a Safety Data Sheet (SDS), in Section 15 "Regulatory Information." Ingredients from Natural Food Sources (NFS) and are exempt from reporting in accordance with Title 27, § 25501(a).


Directions & Ingredients
International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI):
Phenoxyethanol (and) Methylparaben (and) Ethylparaben (and) Butylparaben (and) Propylparaben (and) Isobutylparaben

Common Name Ingredient Listing (FDA Approved):
Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben

Directions:

The correct use concentration depends upon several factors including the chemical and physical nature of the product, its ability to support microbial growth and the likelihood of recontamination during use. Experience has shown that Phenonip ® will preserve cosmetics and toiletries when incorporated at concentrations from 0.25% to 1.0%.

The higher concentrations are generally required only for formulations which, by their nature, are particularly difficult to preserve.

Shampoos and foam baths may be preserved with Phenonip ® at concentrations typically between 0.25 - 0.65%.

Products with a high protein content may require levels from 0.5% - 1.0%.

Other surfactant-based products, for example liquid dishwashing detergents, are generally preserved with Phenonip ® over the range 0.2% - 0.6%.

Safe for lip products at .5%.

Emulsified systems, both o/w and w/o types, may be effectively preserved by the addition of Phenonip ® at 0.4 - 0.7%.

Phenonip ® can also be used to preserve emulsions based on nonionic surfactants, but slightly increased concentrations may be required, eg. 0.5 - 1.0%.

Use Phenonip ® at 1% in the presence of 5% polysorbate 80.

TIPS: Performs best when formulation pH is 3.0-8.0. Inactivated by Polysorbate 20, Polysorbate 80, and ceteareth-20. The recommended usage rates are provided only as a guideline to provide proper preservation. All new formulations should be tested to ensure preservative efficacy. Protect clothing and work area when mixing.

STORAGE: Store in an airtight, cool, dark location. When stored properly, best used within 1 year from date of purchase.

CAUTION: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

"Easy to use"
COMMENTS:  This (or some type of preservative) is needed when making products that may come in contact with water i.e. sugar scrubs, lotions, creams. It's not very expensive, and it gives me peace of mind. Another great product from WSP.

"Great Stuff"
COMMENTS:  I use this in all my oil based products to keep them from molding since everything I make is from scratch. No melt and pours or lotion bases here. My stuff is the real thing and can go bad without a preservative. I don't use very much since it only needs 1% of the total product. It doesn't change the consistency, color, or smell of any of my products and I haven't had any issues thus far.

"A little messy"
COMMENTS:  It's probably just me, I'm not exactly tidy, but I only need a very small amount of this item for the sized batches of lotion I'm making at this time and when I tried pouring the liquid from the bottle it got pretty messy. I think it would be nice to include that information somewhere so people have a heads up when they order it. I took what I had and put it in an amber glass bottle with a dropper and that makes it pretty much perfect to use. I'm assuming it's doing a good job since none of my lotions have mold.

WSP Response:Our Plastic droppers are perfect for measuring small amounts of liquid and they are disposable making this a virtually mess free process. http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/products/droppers-plastic.aspx

COMMENTS:  So far so good! I use this in my whipped sugar scrubs due to how much sugar I add to the base along with the fact that the product will most likely be used in the shower. I haven't had any issues with this preservative and a little goes a long way. I only use this one at 1% as to prevent irritation issues.
