The Next Multifunctional Ingredient

August 21, 2014

Lonza debuts a broad-spectrum antimicrobial for cosmetics.

Lonza Personal Care launched Rômacil V multifunctional cosmetic ingredient. Now available to customer formulators worldwide, this innovative new product can be added as a fragrance, and it also provides a beneficial secondary effect as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, said the company. 

"Our new multipurpose Rômacil V ingredient is a fragrance that also has antimicrobial effects,” says Laura Szymczak-Frye, global marketing manager, Lonza Personal Care. "Formulators now have available a dual-purpose ingredient that can be used at low-concentration levels and that offers a variety of proven benefits in multiple applications.”

Drawing on its decades-long experience in the cosmetic and personal care industries and on its skills in analytical chemistry and toxicology, Lonza Personal Care developed the new Rômacil V product to respond to formulators’ desires for ingredients that offer multiple benefits, that simplify the formulation process and that offer consumers key desired effects.
