euxyl® K 100 is a liquid cosmetic preservative, which can be used in leave-on as well as rinse-off products. Its use is permitted both in products that remain on the skin as well as in rinse-off products. Not recommended for products that are intended for mucous membranes or for lipsticks or toothpastes. euxyl® K 100 has a broad, balanced spectrum of effect against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi. It acts even in very low use-concentrations and has good vapour phase effectiveness.
Equally effective against bacteria, yeasts and mould fungi. It is a typically biostatic product with the biocidal properties necessary for practical use.
For euxyl® K 100 to perform effectively in destroying organisms in products already contaminated, a minimum contact time of 48 hours is necessary.
Since the effect of euxyl® K 100 takes place through chemical reactions with the microorganisms, when it is used in heavily contaminated products loss of active ingredient must be taken into account.
Good production hygiene, as well as the use of raw materials with low microorganism levels as a result of correct raw material control are of course vital prerequisites for the production of
microbiologically faultless finished products.
