Friday, June 10, 2016 - Formulators of personal care and cosmetics products understand the performance advantages of broad-spectrum preservatives. While these products provide protection against both bacteria and fungi, suppliers typically offer only one blend ratio. The result is poor cost performance, because personal care manufacturers are forced to pay for either extra bactericide or extra fungicide. To address this market need, Troy Corporation introduced its line of TroyCare™ Customized Preservative Solutions developed specifically for personal care and cosmetics applications. Now, Troy is introducing the new TroyCare™ EPP series line of Customized Preservative Solutions.
With the expanding portfolio of TroyCare™ Customized Preservative Solutions, formulators can now select a customized broad-spectrum preservative in a choice of chemistries and active ratios with the optimum levels of bactericide, fungicide, and boosting agents for their formulations, yielding the lowest total preservative cost. The new TroyCare™ EPP series currently being introduced are based on Ethylhexylglycerin (EHG) and Phenylpropanol. The additional blends introduced previously are the TroyCare™ FE series, which are based on IPBC and Phenoxyethanol, and the PE series, which is based on EHG and Phenoxyethanol. The broad selection of customized blends in different ratios is globally approved for all rinse-off and leave-on formulations.
“Increasing regulations and heightened customer awareness continue to restrict the use of many traditional personal care preservatives,” says David Koehl, Global Business Manager – Personal Care at Troy Corporation. While preservative suppliers have introduced numerous milder and 'greener' alternatives, these often require higher use levels which can cost significantly more and create formulation challenges. “More than ever, the need for customized products is becoming clear. Troy is at the forefront of this next wave of innovation,” continues Koehl. TroyCare™ Customized Preservative Solutions can be optimized for specific formulations or formulation types. Preservation costs can be decreased while reducing or eliminating formulating challenges.
Utilizing market-accepted ingredients with global approvals and strong safety profiles, TroyCare™ Customized Preservative Solutions bring greater flexibility to manufacturers, as well as custom-tailored performance and reduced cost-in-use. Every formulation is unique. Use the preservative that is optimized for your formulation.
