Germall Plus Liquid is used in lotions, conditioners, shampoos, creams, body washes and body sprays along with other cosmetic formulations. Liquid Germall Plus is a water soluble preservative that is very effective at preventing the growth of gram positive and gram negative bacteria, molds, fungus, yeasts and commonly found organisms. Liquid germal plus works well at inhibiting the growth of these organisms at extremely low concentrations and because of this is considered very cost effective. It works well with most cosmetic ingredients, has no known inactivating counterpart ingredients and can be used in most surfactant formulations. The use level amounts is .1% - .5% of total weight formulation. It is also soluble in cationic, anionic and nonionic water soluble formulation. It should be added in a recipe when the mixture has cooled down to at least 50 C or below. INCI: Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate
I find that the Germal plus helps keep my Diy products fresher longer. The product works well with my flaxseed hair gel. I don't have to refrigerate it like I had to in the past.
A necessity for making home made products! Great deal too.
This is the first preservative I bought and the only one I bought. I really like it and plan on using it throughout the years!
I've been working on some lotion recipes over the last three months and several of my recipes have had bacteria and mold growing on them after that time. Adding a small amount of Germal Plus these kinds of surprises no longer affect my products and give them a huge extended shelf life. Germal Plus is very thick and will not dilute your lotions and butters.
I use this in my lotions and sugar scrubs. I never have a problem with it. My first lotion I have from a year or so ago is still just as good as the day I made it. Never had a problem with this one. Great shipping, great price. I always wait for a sale to come up so it covers the shipping on all my orders. This is the best price out there.
This was my first order of preservative from Bulk Apothecary and I was SO impressed with the packaging of the product!!
My first bottle of preservative I bought (from another company before learning of Bulk Apothecary) was on back order (which I was NOT told until AFTER I had ordered) and what a disaster when I got it finally!!! It was in a clear plastic CHEAP bottle that had a screw on lid and when I opened the box the lid was BARELY on the bottle and had leaked out onto the pitiful paper self printed label, smeared ink, loss product that I paid good money for and had to wait to get since I was not told it was back ordered!! To say I was very disappointed would be an understatement!! I decided that was my first AND LAST order with "that" company!!
When I received my liquid germall from Bulk Apothecary it was a TOTAL difference!!!
My product was in a nice thick bottle WITH a open/close cap so it's EASY to use and not spilling out and causing you to lose your product when your measuring out the amount needed, AND to ensure it didn't leak, it had a red disk in the bottle and tape around the neck!!! Also the label is a quality label so you don't have smeared ink if you get anything on the label!! I was SO pleased with the quality of the packaging and care taken to ensure that my product arrived to me without leakage!!
Every liquid item I have purchased from Bulk Apothecary arrives with tape around the neck and the utmost care to ensure my money is not lost on the products I purchased!!
They truly treat their customers as they would want to be treated and appreciate your business and the value of the money their customers spend when doing business with them!!
Bulk Apothecary is TOP NOTCH!! I HIGHLY recommend them to all of my friends and to anyone reading my review.
4th order of the 2 oz. Shipping i fast so nothing to worry about. Plus if any questions, you can always call and the person who answers the phone will try to help you as best she can. Also if you have any problems, they will fix it. Basically they are like a family and they want to help you and your business grow so they know that they need to do things right to help you succeed. You'll keep buying if you feel you have a team behind you and that is what BulkApothecary is for me!
I got this product to give to my customers. So far 3 customers and they have not complained. Shipping was cool too. No complaints on shipping and I have ordered from here quite a few times.
