Sodium benzoate is a good, natural preservative that can be used in products such as shower gels, lotions, body butters, creams, salves, deodorants and more. Sodium benzoate is ideal in products with a pH of 4.5 or lower. Sodium benzoate is not a broad-spectrum preservative so it should be combined with other preservatives such as potassium sorbate, or Leucidal/Leucidal Complete.

All preservatives in total should be 2% or less of your finished formula. Since sodium benzoate is not substantial on its own the suggested level of usage is 0.1-1%; then combine with another preservative.

Sodium benzoate should be added in the water phase of your formula. If you are creating a product that does not contain any water, you do not need to include a preservative. Only water can grow bacteria so if your formula is all oils/butters, no water, you do not need a preservative.
