    i will be making my own hand and body lotion but need a -konservant-

    i have -bio- cocos- from Thailand
    bio olive oil from Greece
    Vaseline i can get from the chemist or from Auchan
    these are the only ingredients i want to use. no honey, no stearin, no beeswax or anything else...
    i do not want anything that makes it smell...
    but i need something to make it keep, out of the refrigerator.
    Internet has plenty recipes all with fancy names and ingredients.

    what can i use, besides, citric acid, that i can buy at the local chemist NOT in gallon size and if possible nothing to much -chemical-.?36.6 was very helpful indeed, but had no idea what to give me..
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    but coconut oil doesnt go bad when stored outside of the fridge? and it has a neat built in thermometer. i forget exactly, but when its say, below 70f its hard, and when its warmer than 71f, its a liquid.

    in anycase, i have a bottle of coconut oil i carry with me and use for hands and face, after the shower.
