Jeen Launches New Ingredient

September 12, 2013

Jeecide MCA-1 is an alternative preservative.

Jeen International Corporation debuted an alternative preservative product, Jeecide MCA-1. Based on industry demand and increasing preservative regulatory pressures, Jeen researchers have developed a unique alternative approach, the Jeecide Microbial Control Alternative (MCA) series. The initial product in this series is Jeecide MCA-1, a unique liquid blend of organic acids and proprietary efficacy boosters in a glycerin base. Since it does not contain traditional preservatives, the product can be included in formulations carrying “preservative-free” claims. Mild, yet effective, Jeecide MCA-1 imparts little odor or color to a wide range of leave-on and rinse-off personal care and cosmetic products for skin and hair applications.
 

The organic acids provide primary, broad-spectrum microbial control boosted by the efficacy enhancers. In addition, the chelating and antioxidant benefits of the organic acids provide a secondary antimicrobial effect to further increase the effectiveness of the overall microbial control system.Jeecide MCA-1 contains globally acceptable components and is well-positioned as an alternative to widely used preservatives such as parabens, isothiazolinones, formaldehyde releasers and phenoxyethanol. This approach is particularly applicable in Europe and various Asia/Pacific regions where traditional preservatives are under the greatest amount or regulatory pressure.
