E-Leen® Green A is a novel, synergistic combination of nature-based Pentylene Glycol and nature-based Phenylpropanol. The mixture represents a cost-effective solution to obtain completely self-preserving cosmetic products.
Both constituents of E-Leen® Green A are produced by means of “green chemistry” and thus meet the requirements of the natural cosmetics standards COSMOS and Natrue.
E-Leen® Green A is skin-moisturizing, skin conditioning and mildly perfuming. Its antimicrobial effect is largely independent of the pH value.
E-Leen® Green A is water-soluble up to 3% and therefore suitable for clear, water-based products. By combination with Pentylene Glycol, the lipophilic Phenylpropanol remains predominantly in the water phase of emulsions. This circumstance contributes significantly to the broad antimicrobial effect of E-Leen® Green A.
