A liquid cosmetic preservative, which can be used in leave-on and rinse-off products as well as for wet wipes. euxyl® K 703 was developed for use in cosmetic formulations with a skin-friendly pH value of up to 6.
Particularly effective in non-ionic systems. It has a broad, balanced spectrum of effect against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi as well as a good vapour phase effectiveness.
Equally effective against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi. It is a typically biostatic product with the biocidal properties necessary for practical use.
For euxyl® K 703 to perform effectively in destroying organisms in products already contaminated, a minimum contact time of 48 hours is necessary. Since the effect of euxyl® K 703 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.
