  1. Since this product is most likely to come into contact with water, especially if used in the shower, do you recommend a preservative?

    1. If stored and used in a cool dry place (away from moisture/water), it can last around 6 months; if you believe it will be exposed to water/moisture (for example, during use in the shower) it would be best to add a preservative for safety.

  2. We have a small house on the beach. Our sinks and showers go to a gray water receptacle. Do you know if oils could cause a problem?

    1. Depending on the oil, possibly; I recommend contacting a qualified plumber who can advise on methods to minimize/eliminate this occurrence.
