Lincoserve WpH-LO-Plus as sole preservative?

Wondering if this preservative blend I came across could in theory be used as the only preservative in a formula, along with a low ph and chelating agent. It contains:

Pentylene Glycol (and) Propanediol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin (and) Chlorphenesin

Would you use it alone or as a booster for your main preservative?

    I would not rely on it solo since it mostly comprised of preservative boosters/potentiators.  Pair it up with either Phenoxyethanol or Phenethyl Alcohol.
    Chemist/Microbiologist formulating in the Organic & Naturals arena under ECOCert/Natural Products Assn/Whole Foods/National Organic Program guidelines focused skincare & haircare products.

    great, I was thinking maybe .75% Lincoserve and .75% Phenoxyethanol.
