Ingredient Description

A broad spectrum preservative COSMOS-approved for natural & organic cosmetics effective in broad range of pH. It is a synergistic combination of benzyl alcohol with glyceryl monoesters that boost the preservative action and add emolliency. Fills the gap in high pH preservation of natural formulations, being fully active at neutral and slightly alkaline conditions where organic acids are ineffective. Kem Nat is gentle to the skin and effective against bacteria, yeasts & moulds. Colourless and with very mild odour, it is effective in the wide pH range from 4 to 8. It is globally approved for rinse-off & leave-on cosmetics with no restrictions.
