Preservatives are essential in personal care and cosmetic formulations to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination, not only when purchased, but also during the use-up period. At the same time, it is important that the preservatives are formulated without undesired substances and are safe for human health.
Alsiano offers advanced smart antimicrobial systems for skin and hair care formulations that protect the bulk of the cosmetic product while taking care of the skin
VERCATECH PENTYFORCE is an effective skin humectant and skin conditioning mixture with emollient properties for all type of applications offering good protection against yeasts, moulds and bacteria. The synergetic mixture is optimised to cover a broad range of pH from 4 to 7 and a broad type of formulae.
The VERCATECH PENTYFORCE mixture contains low dosage of surfactant type molecules, pointing to minimisation of risk of irritations especially for face/eye products. Research investigation shows a minimised impact on the stability of the formulae especially when it is replacing another preservative system. Furthermore, it offers an opportunity to optimise the cost in the formulas.
The blend is an excellent alternative to conventional preservatives for skin care, hair care, makeup and toiletries, and it also serves as a booster for conventional and alternative preservatives.
