Hello curlyteas! Welcome to the brand new forum.
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:
- water-in-oil emulsions 💣
- ELECTROLYTE-SENSITIVE polymers💣
- conditioners or cationic ingredients💣
- if your product contains magnesium💣
- 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.
