INCI: Benzyl Alcohol (and) Dehydroacetic Acid

A multi-use, broad spectrum preservative system that is a combination of Organic acid and alcohol that can be added at room and elevated temperatures

Products the the Organic Preservative compound is suitable for

Dehydroacetic acid & Benzyl alcohol is suitable for use in various cosmetic applications such as shampoos, conditioners, moisturisers, cream lotions, bubble baths, wet wipes and sunscreens. The Organic preservative compound makes it suitable for use in products containing other Organic ingredients.

The preservative conforms to the requirements of COSMOS and ECOCERT.

Usage instructions

Add the Organic Preservative compound at temperatures under 45c. The preservative has a slight yellowy tinge which isn’t visible in creams, lotions and emulsified products. A small yellow tinge may be seen in clear shower products. The Organic preservative compound has a very low odour making it suitable for use alone or with essential oils, where the true scent of the oils can come through without fighting the scent of the preservative. The preservative system is safe for use with products between a pH of 2 and 7.

    this preservative is a great choice for all that are looking to preserve their formulation with an approved preservative by cosmos and ecocert, I really appreciate that natures key is providing this ingredient. It is partially oil soluble up to 0.6% so adding it to sugar scrubs that goes into the shower is a very important step. thank you again for providing this ingredient.
