LiquaPar ME preservative consists of a combination of Methyl- and Ethylparaben in Phenoxyethanol. An additional booster improves and widens the effect against micro-organisms. Therefore by only using the uncontroversial short chain Parabens the same efficiency can be achieved compared to traditional Paraben combinations, like Rokonsal™ PB-5 preservative or LiquaPar1M MEP preservative. LiquaPar ME does not contain halo-organic components, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde-releasing substances and conforms to the regulations of the EC cosmetics law.
LiquaPar ME preservative has proven to be an effective preserving system for rinse-off-products like shampoos, shower-gels, foam-baths etc. The commonly slightly acidic pH of these products is advantageous for an effective use of the LiquaPar ME preservative. Due to its good skin-compatibility LiquaPar ME preservative is suitable for high-quality care-cosmetics like creams, emulsions, lotions, gels and wet wipes including baby applications. On account of its good dispensability it can be used in O/W-emulsions as well as in W /O-emulsions.
