Gets the job done

The product does its job well no complaints so far.

Formulation separated

I've added saliguard into my lotion, and the lotion immediately changed into runny texture, the following day water and oils separated, what have I done wrong?

Hi Precious, this sounds like a pH problem, where the lower pH of the preservative caused the lotion to split. This only happens when the lotion is already unstable. Unfortunately without knowing your formula its a bit difficult to troubleshoot what the exact issue is. But I recommend checking and adjusting your pH.
