Namely antimicrobial care wherein the product helps to retard the growth of topical pathogens or elimantes them, and preservatives retard the growth of microbes in personal care product formulations.
In recent years, there has been increased dialogue related to natural antimicrobials as topical actives and preservatives in the personal care industry. Synthetic compounds long accepted as effective in controlling microbial growth have come under scientific and regulatory scrutiny. These efforts are mainling driven by safety and enviromental concerns, and the increased incidence of antibiotic resistant microbial strains. Natural alternatives derived from botanicals are therefore being explored by researchers across the world.
