DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Honors Schülke & Mayr’s Sensiva

April 1, 2014

Schülke & Mayr GmbH’s sensiva PA 40 antimicrobial stabilizer earned the top award in DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company’s second annual Zemea Innovation Award program. The program is designed to recognize companies that have commercialized innovative cosmetics and personal care ingredients or finished products that contain Zemea propanediol.  

Sensiva PA 40 antimicrobial stabilizer is used in skin care products. Sensiva PA 40 is the most recent evolution of the sensiva line of multifunctional additives. It combines a nature-identical fragrance ingredient with the boosting of naturally derived Zemea propanediol and adds a gentle synthetic for additional skin care properties and better antimicrobial efficacy. This combination allows sensiva PA 40 to be used at levels similar to more traditional preservative blends, while remaining gentle to the skin.

Like other products in the sensiva product line, sensiva PA 40 has been proven to inhibit the growth and multiplication of odor-causing bacteria. This multifunctional product can be used in leave-on, wet-wipe and sensitive skin applications at a use level of 0.5-1.5% to help maintain the microbiological stability of nature-inspired cosmetics.

Zemea propanediol is a natural, 100% bio-based ingredient made from fermentation of corn glucose and developed for use in the cosmetics and personal care market. It is a high-performance, environmentally sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols and glycerin, where the product’s antimicrobial properties, lack of skin irritation, improved moisturization and excellent sensory properties are benefits.
