  • Sodium benzoate is not a broad spectrum preservative on its own so should be combined with other preservatives for maximum efficacy,

0.5-3% dissolved in water.

Sodium benzoate can be used on its own but is often combined with  potassium sorbate at 0.1-0.3%. Potassium sorbate is effective against molds and yeasts so together with sodium benzoate which is effective against fungi and slightly effective against bacteria, it can make a good preservative.

Adjust the pH as required with citric acid.

Keep well sealed and store away from children, animals, moisture, sunlight and heat. If pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult with your medical care-giver before use.
