New (to me) preservative - E-Leen P8
INCI: Caprylyl Glycol, Phenylpropanol, Water
this one is new to me. Does anyone have any experiences with it?
Is it good, is it bad? I don’t want to fall for all the promises from supplier. :smiley: And it’s a bit pricey.
I usually go with Liquid Germall Plus or Euxyl PE 9010.
Here’s what I found on re-packer’s website -
E-Leen 8 is a new innovations for self-preserved and nature-based formulations. All ingredients are 100% natural origin, COSMOS and NATRUE approved.
The preservative is desinged around a pioneering bio-based Caprylyl Glycol that is produced via green chemistry from sustainably sourced coconut and palm kernel oils. The utilized raw materials are all GMO-free and 100% plant-based.
E-Leen 8 is efficient at low use levels and at various pH-levels. Being free of conventional preservatives, it represents an unparalleled economical option for the alternative protection of natural cosmetics.
Usage: 0.5 - 2%
pH: 3 to 10
E-leen is easily incorporated into emulsions but will not dissolve into highly aqueous solutions. To use in these formulae, mix E-Leen P8 with a solubliser (such as Natural Solubiliser) before adding to your recipe.
