INCI: Glyceryl Carprylate
Even in low concentrations, glyceryl caprylate is active against bacteria, yeast and moulds, for example.
The 100% natural Gyceryl Caprylate is an interesting processing aid in emulsification processes. It can accelerate the emulsification process and save time in production. Furthermore, Glyceryl Caprylate is the best known and most widely used natural preservative enhancer.
It is the preferred enhancer in skin care formulations. And it is particularly powerful in all types of emulsions. It improves the performance of any preservative system at just 0.3%. Perfect for all certified natural products.
For use in water-based products, Glyceryl Caprylate requires a solubiliser.
An addition of ethanol or pentylene glycol can reduce the use concentration of the solubiliser.
0.7% when used as a moisturiser with a strong preservative effect.
0.5 % when used as a moisturiser and preservative enhancer
0.3 % when used as a preservative enhancer.
