Preservative Blends Big at Clariant

November 4, 2013

Clariant launched Nipaguard Zero preservative blends as innovative alternatives to parabens. The company offers a broad portfolio of single actives and optimized blends under the well-known brand names Phenonip, Nipagin and Nipaguard.

Nipaguard Zero blends are based on 100% renewable Velsan SC, a highly effective, novel synergistic booster developed by Clariant that enables use of a reduced amount of preservatives to provide reliable protection against bacteria, yeasts and fungi, said the company. Nipaguard Zero provides broad-spectrum preservation, is easy to use, safe and effective at low concentrations and also meets major regulatory requirements. The four products, all based on Velsan SC are: Nipaguard SCE, Nipaguard SCM, Nipaguard SCP and Nipaguard SCV.
