A mild alkali used in many toiletries as a natural preservative and buffering agent. When used with beeswax, it will help create a very stable emulsion, and the addition of borax to your liquid soap recipes, will help thicken them and create a nice smooth texture.
This product can also be used as a laundry booster to remove soil and brighten whites ... just add 1/2 - 3/4 cup to each load (depending upon washer size). For cleaning around the house, use on porcelain and cookware. It's non-abrasive texture will clean quite nicely. Try borax as a carpet cleaner, garbage disposal cleaner, pet accidents, and so much more! Cosmetic Grade.
