Don't use chelating ingredients?

I ran across some information I wanted to share.  According to IPCS (Institute of Personal Care Science), chelators are only to be used in certain circumstances. Do not use a chelating agent with:

  1. water-in-oil emulsions 💣 
  3. conditioners or cationic ingredients💣 
  4. if your product contains magnesium💣 
  5. if your product contains clay💣 

A chelator helps your product stay fresher longer by making your preservative more effective.  Some common chelators are Biochelate (Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate) , EDTA, Sodium Gluconate and Sodium Phytate.
