What is borax powder

Borax Powder

Also known as sodium borate, it is a salt mineral of boric acid and is a common ingredient in bath salts. The white colourless crystal dissolves easily in water. Its uses are many and some include softening water, antifungal foot soak, curing and even makes flames turn green.

In our recipe, it functions as a preservative, emulsifier, water softener, cleanser, buffering agent and as a fizzer (because of the citric acid)
