    Preservatives in Diy serum

    Hi all. So I am planning on making my own niacinamide and glucosamine serum with some distilled water, glycerin, thickner (xanthan gum). I am just unsure which preservative to go for and which one works for water based serum like this one.
    If anyone can advise I can finally get on with making it!

    Thanks

    Lots of water based preservatives to choose from https://lotioncrafter.com/collections/preservatives
    This is one of the easiest to work with https://lotioncrafter.com/collection...phenoxyethanol
