Noting the demand from both consumers and formulators to find safe and effective preservatives, Chemyunion
has developed the Hebeatol range, three new preservative options that can replace or reduce historical preservatives. Hebeatol Plus is based on xylitol esters, which have broad antimicrobial activity, and may act alone or in synergy with other non-traditional preservatives, and is an ideal alternative for formulating cosmetic and personal care products. Hebeatol Plus is certified by Ecocert-Cosmos and is available in a global compliance version. Hebeatol BA and Hebeatol PS VG were developed after exhaustive studies to determine the best synergistic combination between the xylitol esters and benzyl alcohol or potassium sorbate, respectively.
The use of the Hebeatolrange in cosmetic formulations allows: development of formulations free of controversial and traditional preservatives since it acts as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial; use of a 100% biodegradable molecule obtained from renewable sources; restorative effect of cutaneous barrier, reducing by 21% the transepidermal water loss; use of a synergistic and exclusive combination between a new safe, efficient, “green” and
biodegradable molecule and a well-known preservative that is approved in many countries for cosmetic use; development of skin and hair care formulations.
