The »turbo mode« for
PRESERVATIVES IN COSMETICS
Without protection against germs, water-based skin care products would rapidly spoil, because bacteria, fungi and yeasts are present everywhere in the natural environment. Velsan® SC is Clariant’s sustainable solution to lower the amount of preservatives used, yet keeping cosmetics safe. At the same time Velsan® SC acts as a rheology modifier and emulsifier.
A NATURALLY BASED PRODUCT WITH OUTSTANDING TOLERABILITY BOOSTS THE EFFICACY OF PRESERVATIVES
Like a turbocharger Velsan® SC boosts the effect of conventional preservatives. Based on reduced glucose from wheat or corn and the fatty acid from palm or coconut oil Velsan® SC breaks open the cell membranes of the harmful microbes. This allows the preservatives to penetrate much more easily into the cell. They attack the bacteria and fungi from inside, causing the cell to die.
