Question: Do I need to use a preservative when I water down castile soap?
Have you ever wondered if you need to use a preservative when you water down castile soap? Megan asked that very question. I do not know the answer to that question but Susan Barkley-Nichols of Point of Interest answered that very question in a post called Do I need to use a preservative when I water down castile soap? This posting should give the exact answer.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
