E-Leen® Green C (formerly called Minasolve Green C) is a multifunctional blend, designed for the microbial protection of cosmetics and for the moisturizing and conditioning of the skin.
E-Leen® Green C consists of 100 % nature-derived components, produced from renewable resources. Its major ingredient, bio-sourced Pentylene Glycol, is sustainably made from corn cob and sugar cane bagasse. The blend is COSMOS-approved and suitable for eco-certified cosmetics.
E-Leen® Green C shows a broad spectrum anti-microbial activity and helps to protect all kinds of cosmetic products against microbial degradation. This blend is free of listed preservatives, and is especially effective against bacteria and yeasts. It contains a humectant and a co-emulsifying emollient with re-fatting properties.
E-Leen® Green C is mild to the skin thanks to its non-ionic nature, which also ensures a good efficacy up to pH 7.
E-Leen® Green C exhibits a long lasting skin moisturizing effect, and it contributes to a pleasant, non-sticky and non-greasy skin feel.
