DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company has announced that Schülke & Mayr GmbH's sensiva PA 40 antimicrobial stabilizer used in skin care products was selected as the winner of the second annual Zemea Innovation Award program. 
 
Sensiva PA 40 is a multifunctional additive that combines a nature-identical fragrance ingredient with the boosting of naturally derived Zemea propanediol and adds a gentle synthetic for additional skin care properties and better antimicrobial efficacy.  This combination allows sensiva PA 40 to be used at levels similar to more traditional preservative blends, while remaining gentle to the skin.  Like other products in the sensiva product line, sensiva PA 40 has been proven to inhibit the growth and multiplication of odor-causing bacteria.  This multifunctional product can be used in leave-on, wet-wipe and sensitive skin applications at a use level of 0.5-1.5% to help maintain the microbiological stability of nature-inspired cosmetics.
 
Zemea propanediol is a natural, 100% biobased ingredient made from fermentation of corn glucose and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market.  
 
The Zemea Innovation Award program is designed to recognize companies who have commercialized innovative cosmetics and personal care ingredients or finished products that contain Zemea propanediol.  
 
A panel of judges including Tom Branna, vice president and editorial director of HAPPI magazine; Steve Herman, chairman of the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists, president of Diffusion LLC and professor of cosmetic science at Fairleigh Dickinson University; and Steve Hurff, vice president of Marketing & Sales, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, reviewed and evaluated nominations from around the world.
