Borax, otherwise known as sodium tetraborate, sodium borate or disodium tetraborate, is a chemical compound that occurs naturally in dry lake beds. It can also be created manually by combining the elements boron, sodium and oxygen together. The resulting white powder has an array of different uses, which we’ll cover in more detail below.

Borax powder is commonly found as an ingredient in all kinds of household products, from shampoos and shower gels to lotions, creams, shampoos, bath salts, bath bombs and more. Personal hygiene products aside, borax can also be used as a household cleaner, a preservative and an emulsifier.
Commonly used as a cleaner, borax may still be used in cosmetic products such as lotions, creams, moisturisers, sunscreens and acne care products. It can also be used in toothpaste and mouthwashes as well as in paints and ceramic glazes.
Borax powder may be used as a topical treatment for throat swelling and sores on the tongue or mouth. It may also be used as a pain relief for the pain from the swelling or sores.
