That said-- I make a solid oil based salt scrub and do not use a preservative, but I state *explicitly* that you CANNOT introduce water to the scrub because it does not have a preservative. I state *explicitly* that a portion of the scrub should be removed for use and the scrub itself should not be kept in the shower.

La Oberhasli said:There are plenty of natural preservatives on the market, but if you think that your customer base will be affected because you don't use one at all you can put on there "Preservative Free" thataway it is a selling point and a warning. As always, when in doubt check out the Weston A Price Foundation.digitalmayhem said:You're going to hurt someone.
Puleeze. I seem to remember someone's signature saying "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all." While what most of what you said was true, there certanly is a nicer way to say it.

I entirely agree with your statement. More experienced members sometimes forget that us newbies are asking questions to learn. If we feel like we are being criticized then we won't feel comfortable sharing or asking questions.[quote:3jyw5y8o]
I agree with scotsoap. I make them and never add anything but the salts and the fragrance and even oat and milk powders. No mold happens because there is no water and the pkging is sealed to keep out moisture.
Agreed, and this also is true of newbie unanswered posts, too. There are ones with zero replies on nearly every page in these forums, many I would also like to know the answers to. I try to always do a search before I ask anything and I wouldn't ask if I could find all the info I needed there.
