Schulke introduces enhanced – by design


Schlke\'s euxyl K 900 contains a multifunctional preservative booster to increase the microbiological stability of your formulations.

Like butterflies assist with pollen dispersal for flowers, euxyl K 900 contains a multifunctional preservative booster to increase the microbiological stability of your formulations. This new product is a versatile, cost-effective solution for your leave-on, wet wipe and sensitive formulas.

euxyl K 900 is the latest addition to schulke’s family of gentle preservation systems, including euxyl PE 9010 and sensiva PA 20. These products all share the same preservative boosting ingredient, leading to effective preservation at low concentration levels.

Naturally-occurring substances tend to be more organism-specific and can have colour and odour issues. By using gentle synthetic materials, the activity level, colour and odour of euxyl K 900 can be controlled precisely and standardised. The consistency and availability of these synthetic materials can also be managed to create a more sustainable formulation.

euxyl K 900 contains a common fragrance component that exhibits antimicrobial activity. This activity is boosted by the addition of ethylhexylglycerin. The combination can be used to provide antimicrobial stability to a variety of cosmetic formulations.

Challenge tests performed on a variety of cosmetic formulations show euxyl K 900 to be an effective antimicrobial stabiliser at a use level of 0.5-1.1%. Additionally, it supports deodorant activity, as it has been shown to inhibit the growth and multiplication of odour-causing bacteria.

Schulke & Mayr GmbH has over 124 years of history protecting people and materials against infection and contamination. Its euxyl brand provides numerous preservative blends for the cosmetic industry. These optimised combinations of active substances offer broad-spectrum efficacy, keeping cosmetic products free of microbial growth.

The sensiva and sensidin brands include versatile, multifunctional skin care additives for personal care products. With their unique properties, they are suitable for use in a wide range of cosmetic applications, including creams, lotions and deodorants.

With euxyl K 900, schulke has taken the next step in the evolution of its product family. By combining gentle synthetic components, euxyl K 900 has enhanced the efficiency and efficacy of non-traditional preservation systems.
