Answering the Phenoxyethanol question:

I use it but only for cream cleaners I use for my children for bathing which I make every 2 weeks and it’s in a pump bottle. And heat and hold for 20mins plus Good Manufacturing Process. All these steps to be safe because Phenoxyethanol does not have a fungicide. It takes care of bacteria and yeast but not fungi. So if your lotion/cream is going to be in a cup with people dipping their hands inside and you are not too sure of your equipment/Bottle Sanitization and you don’t know how long you are going to be keeping your cream for, I won’t advise you use it.
