They both have the same common name but the inci name has an “and” between each ingredient which is the same exact ingredient.

"Great in shaving cream! "
COMMENTS:  Used this as directed for the Soothing Shaving Cream recipe provided by Handmade studio, and it turned out excellent! This was a project for my husband (that he LOVES!), and because he takes his cream into the shower with him (he's got one of those in-shower shaving mirrors he uses), this preservative ensures that if the cream is exposed to water in any way, it won't spoil or become a Petri dish for bacteria. Very happy with this product & would recommend it for a myriad of other handmade projects! Thanks WSP!

"Better to be safe then sorry "
COMMENTS:  I w=used to be very unfamiliar with preservatives ~ as I was uneducated ~ As I did my research its almost foolish not to use a small amount of preservatives, your products will do ppl much more harm WITHOUT them rather than with the small amount used.I take pride in what I do & I would feel TERRIBLE if something grew mold or bacteria, fungus, whatever , even worse if it had it & wasn't visible to the eye!I now KNOW, when my products leave my door, they are safe & will hold a shelf life a bit longer!

"Happy to Have "
COMMENTS:  I am so happy to have this for the peace of mind in my room sprays. I am also glad for my lotions as well. I don't want to have any of my products to have the mold or bacteria. In learning through the Learning Library and recipe ingredients, I have found out so much that I think is safe and helpful not only for me but my clients as well. I appreciate all the precautions that I am learning about. Thanks WSP!

"This is a good value"
COMMENTS:  I use this to make the spray from concentrate. For room sprays, for body splash etc...I will continue to use this to keep my products free from germs and bacterial growth. I recommend you do the same, it is easy to use and doesn't adversely affect the product you use it in. It's just one more step that makes your products more professional and dependable.

"Goat Milk Lotion"
COMMENTS:  I make goat milk lotion and add the Germaben II to my formula. When I first made the lotion, I added the Germaben II to the formula. Here it is 18 months later and the lotion is still as fresh as the day I made it. This is wonderful! It is a good preservative for lotions and I recommend this to anyone making lotion. When I started making the goat milk lotion I wasn’t sure if this would work so thought I would try it. The Grapeseed Oil helps with the preservative process also. It goes into the lotion smoothly and blends well.
