Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Does Leucidal-SF Complete work with ionic ingredients like Magnesium chloride? If not which one would be best?

    Leucidal® SF Complete is highly compatible with many ingredients such as Magnesium Chloride. Leucidal Liquid SF is not compatible with high concentrations of Magnesium Chloride. All Leucidal products may become hazy with some ingredients like highly anionic ingredients such as thickeners. To combat haze, add a solubilizing agent such as a salt or polysorbate 20 to improve clarity.

  • Hello, I’m new to formulating. I am looking to make a DIY natural body butter and leave in conditioner. Even though these are oil-based, I am still looking to add a preservative. My questions: upon looking at the ingredients, I am still a bit confused as to the overall difference in Leucidal® Complete (is this the same as Leucidal Liquid complete?) vs Leucidal SF complete? Does one serve a different purpose to the other and is one more effective in protection? Can Leucidal Complete and Leucidal SF Complete be combined in a single formula? Lastly, at what point do you add these to your formula or to a simple formula such as body butter? Thank you in advance!

    All products that will come into contact with fingers or water (placed in the shower) should use a preservative to protect the product. Leucidal® Complete or Leucidal® Liquid Complete contains Radish Root, Coconut, and Lactobacillus. Leucidal® SF Complete contains Coconut and Lactobacillus. It is the easier of the two to formulate with. We recommend beginners use Leucidal® SF Complete. Both are effective and increase shelf-life.

    You would not need to use both, Leucidal Complete and Leucidal SF Complete in a product. If you are wanting to use a secondary preservative, we would recommend Sodium Benzoate and Gluconolactone.

    You would add the Leucidal Complete and Leucidal SF Complete during the cool down phase or at the end of formulation.
