Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 15 Customer Reviews)
Liquid Germall Plus is a highly efficacious, ready-to-use, broad-spectrum preservative system for personal care formulations. It is clear viscous liquid with a characteristic mild odor. Liquid Germall Plus is a patented combination of Germall II and IPBC pre-dissolved in Propylene Glycol for ease of use. This combination exhibits a synergistic preservative effect, which reduces the total active preservative level necessary; provides for complete, broad spectrum preservation against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeast, and mold. It is composed of Diazolidinyl Urea, 3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbamate, and less than 1% Propylene Glycol.
Usage: • Can be used in a wide variety of personal care formulation for reliable preservation. • Soluble in cationic, anionic and nonionic water soluble formulations, as well as in the emulsified portion of oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions. • Compatible with most cosmetic raw materials. • Recommended use levels in a finished formulation is 0.1 - 0.5%. • It is effective over a broad pH range from 3 – 8. • Add at 50°C or below during the cool down stage of processing.

Rating: I bought this product because I was starting to expand my line with Cream Soap, Liquid Soap and Lotion. This product is great for all 3 products and does not alter them in any way. I made my lotion about a month ago, since it was my first batch I am holding on to it for a while to see how the Germall Plus works.
I have kept my lotion and liquid soap at room temp for several weeks now and they looks and feel as if they were made yesterday. It is a wonderful product that I will always keep on hand. It feels great knowing my products are free from bacteria.
Bottom line, easy to use, takes very little to protect your product, affordable and won't alter your products like some other preservitive.
Rating: I have been struggling with Optiphen Plus for a while due to its "fantastic" property to separate some of the lotions (weird but not all). So I gave Germall Plus a try and I'm glad I did. It works great and does not alter the texture or scent. Plus I don't have to worry about measuring the temperature of the product before adding it. It's gonna be my exclusive preservative from now on. I use 0.5% in lotions I store in a pump bottle and 1% in lotions I store in jars and I had no problems so far. I'm not just glad I tried this particular product but I'm also very happy I discovered NDA. All NDA products (except liquid Castile soap) are of a great, superior quality and the prices are so affordable.

Rating: I started a new business two years ago and have been using the preservative almost exclusively in my products. Have had no trouble with its performance. I appreciate the extensive information NDA supplies for its ingredients and intend to continue using this product.

Rating: I seen the ratings for this and bought it due to some of my lotions would get mold growth on them, and I needed to eliminate that factor. So far its great with 0 growth. It also does not change the texture, or quality of your product. Wonderful Item for Natural soaps, and lotions.
Rating: This is the only preservative I use and I see no reason to try anything else.. why mess with a good thing?!

Rating: I love the drip cap on this. I opened it up a little more with a toothpick to get it to flow but now I have drop by drop control. I have used liquid germall plus for years and it works so well! I always had to deal with a pour bottle before so it was difficult to get this kind of control. My creams never mold and my customers love it because it doesn't contain any parabens.
Rating: A first rate preservative with a low usage level, great price point too.

Rating: After researching on what preservative to buy.... I bought this one. I`m glad I did. My products are 99.5 to 99.9% natural. The reason it`s not 100% is due to the preservative (which is tiny in the grand scheme of things). I opted for this synthetic ingredient because of the complete anti-microbial protection. NDA customer service (Thank-you Tiffany) helped me (a Newbie at making creams). Thanks for helping me!

Rating: I loved the liquid germall plus! I had the hardest time stopping mold growth in my mixtures containing aloe vera and this instantly eliminated the issue I was having. The only problem I had was with the slow drip cap. It was very hard to get the product to come out. Other than that I loved it.
