How do you find which preservative goes with what product?

After a very exciting and short plane ride from Abbotsford to Calgary, and a slightly longer mini van ride to Banff, I'm here at the Canadian Soapmakers' conference! The main event starts tonight with the Meet & Greet and continues with workshops tomorrow and Sunday! I went out last night with the organizer, Lindalu; the ladies from Voyageur Soap & Candle, Nicole and Loreta; and a few ladies from Saskatchewan and BC. We tried to go to karaoke, but it grew late and it was time to go home. I'm off to breakfast in a few minutes. Wonder what we'll find? 

If you're wondering what preservative goes with the product you're making, check out the preservatives section of the blog and consult the preservatives comparison chart!

When you find the preservative that will work, check out the more detailed post in that section to read about suggested usage rates, heat tolerances, and other interesting and fun facts about that preservative!

Brilliant. Thank you sincerely for all the hard work and geeky love you pour into this blog. Myself and countless others continue to use you and that big brain of yours as a resource and fun guide to navigating this crazy world of formulations and product concocting.
I met you for the first time today in a well done and information crammed, hurricane session on shampoo and lotion crafting in Banff. I was intrigued, enthralled and laughing the whole time. Your ability to mix wit and humour, not only make your blog enjoyable, but ensure your bigger than life personality shines through and really resonates with people.
I am very lucky to have met you and look forward to more shenanigans and lessons from you.

Wish I were there! I love Banff.... was there on my honeymoon where we traveled through the Canadian Rockies. That was 27 years ago. I'm overdue for a return visit.

Love all the information you have so generously shared with us. Thank you and enjoy your conference!
