Hi All!

I am looking for a preservative for the skin cosmetic product that works in a sand-like substance with some water in it. Basically itís a coffee scrub made from coffee output from espresso machine mixed with some coconut oil, essential oils and maybe honey.
 
It would be very appreciated if someone could suggest a good natural preservative that is not harmful for skin and environment.

Thanks everyone!
Iryna

Hi Iryna,
Not sure if this is helpful, but check Sugar Sand "a byproduct of evaporation, part of the syrup-making process". It's used in cosmetics. Here is the article.

Skin is one of the sensitive parts of the human body, and using a natural and organic product is the best way to take care of it, well I don't make natural skincare products at home, but I do order them online store. Many online stores offer natural and organic skincare products with money back guarantee.

Iryna, from my experience I can say that essential oils will not be an effective preservative (tried it in my homemade scrub, it was failure) - they will not prevent nasties from growing in the scrub. Same goes for grapefruit seed extract.
You can use Optiphen at 0.5 - 1.5%. That's what I use for my homemade soap. It's harmless to the nature and pretty safe for your customers.
