  • Cosmetic preservative: Sharomix AM24 … Thoughts?

    Posted by Graillotion on July 13, 2023 at 10:22 pm

    One of the re-packers that I sometimes use…is now selling Sharomix AM24……

    INCI: Methylpropanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Polyquaternium-80, Didecyldimonium Chloride

    All but the 2nd ingredient I am unfamiliar with.

    What are your thoughts, @PhilGeis and others? Good one….or just one more insufficient one crowding the field?

    Seems a rather ugly INCI to slap on a label…unless this walks on water.

    What type of applications would this be suitable for….if any?

    Don;t know this one. On paper, it doesn’t look like much - a couple of diols f. Quats are pretty lame as cosmetic preservatives. Looks like the hooks are “free-from” labeling and cost with the broad spectrum/pH range assurances. Oddly, documents does not address efficacy - not even the usual boiler plate stuff.

    My bias - diols fixed up for snake oil patent
