Euxyl PE 9010 is a paraben free liquid cosmetic preservative for lotions and other cosmetic emulsions. This preservative is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi.
Do I Really Need a Preservative?
Most cosmetic products are emulsions, i.e. they contain water. Bacteria, mould and yeast loves water! Therefore, if your product contains water you must use a preservative. Please Note: Vitamin E is not a preservative! Neither are essential oils.
Which Products Don’t Need Preservatives?
Products which contain only oils and butters, e.g. balms, body butters or serums, do not need a preservative as they have 0 water content.
How to Use
- Use 0.5 – 1% in emulsions.
- Use 0.5% – 1% in solutions.
Euxyl can tolerate high salt content but a high load of surfactants will make it less effective.
