A a liquid cosmetic preservative based on phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin. The addition of ethylhexylglycerin affects the interfacial tension at the cell membrane of microorganisms, improving the preservative activity of phenoxyethanol. Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin has a broad, balanced spectrum of effect against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi.
Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin is a liquid cosmetic preservative based on phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin. The addition of ethylhexylglycerin affects the interfacial tension at the cellmembrane of microorganisms, improving the preservativeactivity of phenoxyethanol. The preservative has a broad, balanced spectrum of effect against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi.
Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin is equally effective against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi. It is a typically biostatic product with the biocidal properties necessary for practical use.
For Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin to perform effectively in destroying organisms in products already contaminated a minimum contact time of 48 hours is necessary. Since the effect of Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin takes place through chemical reactions with the microorganisms when it is used in heavily contaminated products loss of active ingredient must be taken into account.
Good production hygiene as well as the use of raw materials with low microorganism levels as a result of correct raw material control are of course vital prerequisites for the production of microbiologically faultless finished products.

In practice emulsions are preserved with 0.5 – 1.0 % addition of Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin
Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin is clearly soluble in use concentration of 0.5 – 1.0 %. It can tolerate high salt content. A high load of surfactants can result in a loss of efficacy.
For wet tissues good preservation results are achieved with 0.5 – 1.0 % Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin.
Formulas containing natural raw materials have a higher risk for microbial contamination. Microorganisms introduced by this pathway are quickly eliminated by Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin..
Phenoxyethanol & Ethylyhexyglycerin are limited under the EU Directive 76/768/EEC of a maximum of 1.1% in both Leave on and Rinse off preparations. An active content of 90% phenoxyethanol is present in this product). Do not use without first reading the precautions on the website and packaging.
In addition to our precautions and general safety information, we always recommend keeping a first aid kit nearby. You are working with hot water and oils, accidents can happen, so always be prepared!
