Lonza, Allendale, NJ, announced the launch of Geogard Ultra, a new product to meet increased demand for alternative cosmetic preservatives. With growing concerns over traditional preservatives such as parabens, Geogard Ultra provides a single solution for companies seeking alternatives to traditional preservatives. The product’s global regulatory acceptance, broad-spectrum activity and multifunctionality means it can be utilized in a wide variety of cosmetic products such as shampoos, lotions and skin creams. Unlike traditional cosmetic preservatives, it can be used in cosmetic products that are marketed in major markets around the world including Europe, Japan, North America and South America.
According to the company, this new product helps prevent spoilage by utilizing less aggressive “Hurdle Technology.” Instead of a harsh, aggressive approach with bacteria and fungi, Geogard Ultra primarily functions by creating a more hostile environment within the formulation for microbes to overcome. Not only does it provide greater utility with its multifunctional action and effective protection against product spoilage, but it can also increase the skin moisturizing capacity of the formulation.
