Inolex has introduced Spectrastat, a high-performance biostatic system for preservative-free cosmetics. According to the company, Spectrastat is the first system on the market to contain CHA, a novel patented organic acid. Unlike other organic acids, CHA is capable of stopping the growth of the fungus A. niger at a wide range of pH. CHA is non-toxic, globally acceptable and ideally suited for paraben- and preservative-free claims.

Inolex’s discovery of CHA for use in cosmetics came about after years of research into the problems associated with Aspergillus niger. “Cosmetic formulators have been demanding fungistatic ingredients that are easy-to-use and economical,” said Dan Winn, personal care business director at the company. “We found CHA to be an ideal partner for typical bacteriostatic agents already on the market, such as caprylyl glycol and ethylhexylglycerin.”
