Damn!! Beat me to the punch NCC!! ^5!!

E-wax doesn't have to be all bad. I don't deal in wax, but is it all all or nothing phenomena? How much you need to emulsify is product dependent, and if she's using something additional to emulsify to make the consistency more uniform can you you really predict what you'll get, especially if heat is added to the mix?

And if you mix them both you will not get the same feel as either and it still won't be as good as ecomulse

Yes, people started complaining when she added the ricemilk. Things like that milk powders, even aloe are tricky to preserve, so you have to know what you are doing. If at first her preservative system was working right and then she added the milk and didn't see if her system is working with the new formula, then that's what you get spoiled milk smell

A good product will not go bad on you if it is preserved adequately and you are not adding anything to it (e.g., water, dirty fingers). A good product should last a while even with daily customer use and abuse. And a good preservative system would and should kill off bacteria that are introduced by the customer through daily use (fingers, leaving it open while using it, etc)
