They have recently focused on creating ideas with novel ingredients such as Cosmos / ECOCERT surfactants, renewable carbon sources, naturals and vegetable derivatives, as well as preservative boosters and natural choices for preservation. For instance, the Cosmos/Ecocert chelatant Tetrasodium glutamate diacetate allows the reduction of the preservative’s dosage up to 90% in many cases, particularly gram negative bacteria. In addition, the use of Salix Alba extract, a natural choice for cosmetics preservation system, offers a totally natural preservative system, mainly proven by challenge tests.
