Lonzagard Gets European Regulatory Approval

December 9, 2005

EUROPE: Lonza has received regulatory approval for one of its antimicrobial products, Lonzagard benzethonium chloride, as a cosmetic preservative for leave-on personal care products. Benzethonium chloride was previously approved for rinse-off products. This new regulation impacts not only European based producers of cosmetic products, but anyone exporting personal care products into Europe.
A Lonza company spokesperson commented, “This regulatory approval comes at a very opportune time when the number of cosmetic preservatives is narrowing considerably. Our customers need more tools than are currently available to prevent product spoilage. Lonza is committed to expand the number of cosmetic preservatives that will protect our customers’ products from such negative consequences.”
