EasySafe P8 / GC 8 / OC 8 – Three optimized and cost-effective solutions for alternative formula protection
Safety is key in the design of consumer products, regardless of their sales price. Minasolve® therefore offers three new solutions for alternative formula protection. They are based on the cost-effective multifunctional ingredient Octiol (INCI name Caprylyl Glycol). All three solutions are temperature-stable and easy to use liquids.
- EasySafe P8 – the alternative for ultimate performance
INCI: Caprylyl Glycol, Phenylpropanol
EasySafe P8 provides broadspectrum protection, also at high pH-values. It combines two multifunctional ingredients: Caprylyl Glycol, a wellknown skin humectant, and Phenylpropanol, an aroma compound naturally occurring in fl owers and fruits. EasySafe P8 is also well suitable for clear, water-based products.
- EasySafe GC 8 – Mild, safe and versatile protection
INCI: Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate/Caprate, Glycerin
EasySafe GC 8 is designed to protect mild and low-odour formulations. It is based on Glyceryl Caprylates and Caprates derived from vegetable oils. These mild skin care agents have refatting and co-emulsifying properties.
EasySafe GC 8 has a broad-spectrum antimicrobial effect. It can also help to avoid thinning effects which may be caused by Caprylyl Glycol in some formulations.
- EasySafe OC 8 – The eco-friendly preservative solution
INCI: Caprylyl Glycol, Phenylpropanol, o-Cymen-5-ol
EasySafe OC 8 is an eco-friendly alternative to out-of-time preservatives, such as Triclosan or Triclocarban. EasySafe OC 8 combines three mild ingredients, resulting in a powerful antimicrobial and anti-oxidant activity. Among them is the skin-friendly preservative o-Cymen-5-ol, an isomer of thymol – the active molecule of thyme. EasySafe OC 8 is of low odour and free of halogencontaining compounds. The antimicrobial effect of EasySafe OC 8 is largely pH-independent.
