A new highly efficient alternative for gentle broad spectrum preservation in natural cosmetics and conventional personal care. Kem Nat BETA is a synergistic combination of largely accepted cosmetic preservatives with 100% natural-derived emollients that boost the antimicrobial action and add skin conditioning effect. This combination of safe & proven preservatives with multifunctional agents ensure a truly reliable effect on the full range of microbial contaminants at reduced use levels and reasonable costs. Kem Nat ß is globally approved in rinse-off & leave-on as well as permitted in natural certified cosmetics. The antimicrobial action of benzyl alcohol as antibacterial & benzoic acid as antifungal is boosted by glyceryl caprylate & propanediol. This optimised combination of ingredients with different chemical functionality (alcohol, acid, ester, diol) offer reliable and effective broad spectrum preservation against bacteria with a particularly high effect on fungi.
