Thank you for your enquiry, please see the below response from our Research and Development team;

“Definitely not adding the Preservative Eco Plus.

The essential oils are not part of the preservative system at all so if you don’t like those two suggestions, change them to something else or leave them out altogether.

Clay is extremely hard to preserve in a wet product as it tends to pull the preservative towards itself in preference to the water content. This leaves the water portion of the mask under preserved.. Add to that the fact that rose water is always at risk of fungal contamination, it’s very hard to preserve safely.

You can’t simply add more preservative to make up for this as extra amounts of preservative can irritate the skin.

If you to use 1.5% Preservative K in the formulation, that has had some better test results but I must stress that you should have this challenge tested for yourself as we did not get consistent results and do not want to put you at risk."

Hello! may I add preservative eco plus to this recipe in 1% instead of essential oils?
I’d like to store it for 3 months not 3 days :)
Thanks for recipes!
