Phenoxyethanol Preservative

Phenoxyethanol Preservative

Phenoxyethanol is a non-formaldehyde- releasing preservative that is clear to pale yellow in colour and has a mild aroma.  This preservative is synthetic in origin and has a pH of 7, but suitable for a wide pH variation.  It is suitable for use in products with a pH of up to 12 when completed, and suitable for leave on and wash off products.  Its broad spectrum capabilities cover bacteria, yeast and mould.

Please be aware that phenoxyethanol can be slow to action and can take up to 48 hours to become fully effective.  Blending with a faster acting perservative such as potassium  sorbate or sorbic acid will aid your product, or keep under refrigeration until the preservative has time to activate.

Usage Rate: Up to 1%
