Minimum Shelf life:

Inci:Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, Sorbic Acid

An effective and simple to use preservative that is palm free and comes with good eco credentials so that it can be used in natural and organic products.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear, colourless to slightly straw coloured mobile liquid with a slight odour which becomes stronger if the preservative is added as the last ingredient in a product.
 
We recommend to blend the Stage 3 (below 40°C) ingredients together before adding to the product.
 
This way, the preservative has a very low odour profile.
 
An unique combination of benzyl alcohol, salicylic acid, glycerin and sorbic acid.
 
This antimicrobial blend offers broad spectrum protection against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeast and moulds.
It has a wide range of global regulatory acceptance. It is non GMO and Vegan.
 
The Glycerine is Palm Free and is sourced from Canola or Soy Bean Oil.
 
As this preservative contains Salicylic acid, it cannot be used in leave on products (like creams) intended for babies and children under the age of 7.
 
However it can be used in rinse off products for children under the age of 7, like a shampoo or body wash.
 
The individual materials that make up Preservative Eco are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng) here.

HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
Effective in oil in water (O/W) and water in oil (W/O) emulsions so can be used in creams and lotions for all skin types.
 
Suitable for use in anhydrous (non-water containing) formulations such as oily body scrubs.
 
Because of the nature of the scrub, water is likely to enter the product container as it is used and so will need a preservative.
 
Hair Care
No direct hair care usage but it is effective in hair conditioners, hair packs and shampoos.
 
Other
Use at 1% but it is safe to go as high as 1.1% for example when using herbal infusions and decoctions.
 
The maximum safe amount use in products is no more than 1.15%.
 
Effective range is pH3 to pH8. Water soluble, so can be used in water based products such as toners.
 
It is best if combined with glycerin first.
 
Always check with your cosmetic safety assessor to ensure the percentage is correct for your particular product.
Add to Stage 3 (below 40°C) when making creams and lotions.
 
As it has a natural odour that can show through, we find it is better to either combine the Stage 3 ingredients together before blending or add Preservative Eco as the first ingredient of the Stage 3.
 
We have found that when it is added last, the odour appears to be stronger and more noticeable.
 
Of course, adding essential oils can also cover this.
 
It is not suitable to use when combining clays into emulsions.
 
Although some of the older publications still suggest using drops as a measure, this is not accurate as dropper sizes vary.
 
Always weigh the amount of preservative used to get the correct percentage needed.
 
Suggested Blends
Do not blend different preservatives with each other unless you are experienced in this area and can have the result tested for efficacy.
 
If you are adding extra materials to a base product, you may need to add extra preservative as well.
 
Ensure the same preservative as the base product is used.

CAUTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS

As this preservative contains Salicylic Acid, it cannot be used in leave on products, such as creams and lotions, that are intended for babies or children under the age of 7. It can be used in shampoos and body washes, because they are rinse off products.

Is it safe to use in a hand cream (prone to eczema and cuts)?

We haven't used it in a hand cream recipe for eczema, but if you do, we would recommend doing a patch test. The Aromantic Team

Perfect

This is a lovely product. Good price. The scent is minimal and the preservative works well. I would recommend to any beginner, or advanced, formulator.

Works well

This product was recommended and blended really well into a emulsion. Over time I am hoping it will demonstrate that it will preserve the product made.
