(I.e. 50g cream about 7 drops for 3 months shelf life)
It is suitable for all leave-on and rinse-off products.
Here is a new innovative cosmetic preservation based on Phenoxyethanol. It is approved worldwide, as well hydrolysis and temperature stable. It is active in the pH range to 12 and thus easy to handle.
INCI Name: Glyceryl Caprylate
Glyceryl Caprylate is a vegetable based wetting agent with strong activity against bacteria and yeast. Is an excellent booster for organic acids and different listed preservatives. Due to its amphiphilic structure it lowers the surface tension. This can lead to smaller droplets and more stable emulsions. At higher concentrations it may reduce the viscosity of emulsions.
Blend 1388 ECO
INCI Name: Aqua (and) Glycerin (and) Sodium Levulinate (and) Sodium Anisate
