Product Protection

Evonik Dr. Straetman’s GmbH specialises in alternative and natural product protection. There are several ways to protect Cosmetics products – multifunctional antimicrobials and preservative blends.

Why We Need Antioxidants

Antioxidants help to protect the oil phase of a Personal Care formulation from oxidation. This prevents against the negative impacts of oxidation such as altered smell, discoloration, loss of function and separation.


Within the dermofeel® Toco range, Surf we offer several natural antioxidants for for certified natural cosmetics based on Tocopherol being a natural alternative to BHT.  



Why We Need Chelating Agents

In order to further increase product protectionchelating act synergistically in combination with antioxidants. 

Phytic Acid is a natural chelator (and replacement of EDTA) and is able to inactivate metal ionswhich increase oxidation rate in cosmetic formulations. Furthermore, it’s highly suitable for rinse-off  products because it maintains foaming properties in presence of hard water during application and prevents precipitation of divalent fatty acid salts in soaps. 

Chelating Agents
