Optiphen® is a unique and diverse liquid preservative which is paraben free
and formaldehyde free
containing Phenoxyethanol in an emollient carrier base of Caprylyl Glycol. The combination of these two ingredients provide optimal protection against microbial growth (yeast, bacteria and mold) while imparting emolliency and an exceptional feel to the finished product. Optiphen is effective as a stand-alone preservative, but also works well with other preservatives. Optiphen is a clear liquid that can be easily added directly to the formulation during pre- or post-emulsification at or below 140°F (60°C). There are no Ph restrictions in formulating with Optiphen. Optiphen is compatible and effective with most ingredients used in the personal care industry (including aqueous and anhydrous systems and emulsions) for products such as scrubs, shampoos, balms, lotions & creams, and salves. Individual testing is always recommended.
