Great broad spectrum preservative

I had previously used Microcare DB but I found it didn't inhibit mould in my moisturizer. I swtched to Euxyl PE and bye, bye mould :)

Solid container

Happy with this in my first attempt with conditioner bars. Only needed such a tiny amount but it does have almost a year before expiry date.

I am sure it’s working

I just watch Belinda’s videos and put 0.5-1% in all water solutions. If I see moulds in a few month, I’d let you know. I wonder if I still need to put in preservative if I keep the solution in fridge all the time?
