Water in Cosmetic DIYs

Hello Everybody! 🙂

Today I will briefly talk about the water we use in our DIYs and explain how to calculate its amount in our formulation (I have received many questions of explanation 🙂 I thought it was clear but apparently it was not so).


We already know that whenever we use water in our cosmetics, we need to add preservative because where there is water, there is life and therefore bacteria of any sort might be enjoying the swimming poo.l 😀
It is actually NOT ONLY the case: for example there might be bacteria also in powder-form cosmetics… but the rule that if we have water in our cosmetics we need to add some kind of preserving system is not changed (it’s simply… “not only” 😉 ).

However, does any kind of water work fine for our cosmetics?
