From homemade detergents to ant killer, Borax (also known as sodium tetraborate) has become a staple for the do-it-yourselfer interested in finding their own all-natural solutions to everyday obstacles.
Borax is a natural mineral which is widely used in the cosmetic industry. It is an emulsifier, natural preservative, cleansing agent, and a buffering agent.
Stores well under any condition, but extreme moisture is to be avoided. Can be used directly for cleaning purposes, and is suitable for both cosmetic and cleaning formulations.
Avoid contact with the eyes and mouth, and do not expose directly to the skin.
Sold by the ounce.
