Geoguard 221

Geoguard 221 is WONDERFUL to work with. I had a problem with the bottle leaking into my order box with other items - believe the manufacturers need to look into providing better sealing lids - i had to throw the bottle away due to its leaking into the box as i believe the Geoguard 221 had been compromised by being exposed to Oxygen from the time it left Essentially Natural premises and arrived at its destination - which is MOST sad:-( as it delayed me preservitng my creams timeously which i also had to dispose.
