  1. What ingredients create shelf life for your products, For example if you make a baking soda lemon scrub what can you add to make it last long?

    1. Hi Verolyne, In order to make a cosmetic products with a shelf life, you need to understand some basic but important cosmetic science including how to measure and combine ingredients safely and effectively. Our Complete Skin Care Course for Beginners includes a section on how to use preservatives for many type of products, if you’re interested in learning about it.
      In my professional opinion baking soda is an alkaline (high Ph) ingredient which it is very harsh on the skin plus lemon which it is acidic can be also harsh. Be aware of many recipes on internet are unsafe and unstable unfortunately . Knowledge on what ingredients come from and how they behave is key to formulate and create a safe and long last product.
