Going Paraben free? The new Nipaguard Range

Posted by Chemlink in Industrial Products, Personal Care Products, Regulations | 0 comments

In recent years, there has been a massive increase in consumers who look to move away from paraben preserved products. Clariant seized the opportunity to look into creating a range of paraben free preservatives for personal care formulations and came up with the Nipaguard Zero range, a range with scope for formulators. This range offers a broad spectrum preservation, without the use of halogens or formaldehyde.

The Nipaguard Zero range utilizes Velsan SC (Sorbitan Caprylate), a natural and renewable preservative booster, giving 4 options: SCE, SCM, SCP, and SCV. All 4 options have been approved for use globally.

  • Nipaguard SCE (Sorbitan Caprylate, Propanediol, Benzoic Acid) offers good performance, even at a high pH, for leave on or rinse off products and has been approved by ECOCERT
  • Nipaguard SCM (Sorbitan Caprylate, Methylisothiazolinone, Propylene Glycol) offers a superior performance compared to parabens in rinse off products
  • Nipaguard SCP (Sorbitan Caprylate, Phenoxyethanol) works in synergy with Phenoxyethanol against yeast and moulds
  • Nipaguard SCV (Sorbitan Caprylate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzoic Acid) is the ideal selection for wet wipe formulations.

Another paraben free preservative option by Clariant is Nipaguard PO5 (Phenoxyethanol, Piroctone Olamine); which is a blend of Phenoxyethanol and Piroctone Olamine which work together to give a broad  preservative for a multitude of personal care applications.

With these preservatives from Clariant, there could be an ideal paraben free preservative option waiting for you!
