Antimicrobial preservation in cosmetics and personal care

Keyser & Mackay and IMD Natural Solutions associate their strength to introduce a natural multifunctional ingredient in acqueous and surfactant based products, for cosmetic and personal-care applications.

Antimicrobial preservation in cosmetics and personal care is an increasing challenge, due to growing regulatory restrictions.

Natural antimicrobials appears to be the most promising solution. The challenge is to develop a solution that addresses the needs of the industry, in terms of microbial protection, product safety, regulatory compliancy, customer adoption without changing color and flavor.  (1)

IMD Natural Solutions has developed a multifunctional ingredient (skin conditioning and biosurfactant) with secondary antimicrobial effect, which provides optimal microbial protection in acqueous and surfactant based products.
