The balanced combination of ingredients offers an effective multifunctionality for a wide range of Personal Care and Cosmetics products. This speciality ingredient offers skin conditioning, masking, pH regulating and antimicrobial activity within formulations. In emulsions, a combination with an antimicrobial surface active substance (for example: dermosoft® GMCY MB) is recommended to improve the overall performance of the product.
- dermosoft® GMCY MB – A vegetable based wetting agent with strong activity against bacteria and yeast. dermosoft® GMCY MB is an excellent booster for organic acids and different listed preservatives.
