INCI:Gluconolactone (and) Sodium Benzoate (and) Calcium Gluconate
Formerly Naturagard Ultra
A combination of a naturally occurring food additive glucono delta lactone (derived from corn) and a food-grade preservative sodium benzoate (the sodium salt of benzoic acid) along with a trace amount of calcium gluconate as a processing agent. This preservative is excellent for challenging formulations that tend to separate after time and are affected by chemical reactions. Because it is provided in powder form it will not jeopardise stability like most of the other natural or alternative preservatives.
Geogard Ultra™ is accepted by ECOCERT as a preservative in certified organic cosmetics.
Naturagard Ultra not only provides effective protection against product spoilage, but it can also increase the skin moisturising capacity of the formulation.
· broad spectrum preservation
· compatible with all surfactants
· may be added before cooling for ease of use
· will not change texture and viscosity
· GRAS (generally regarded as safe) composition
· Proven moisturizing effects
· Not tested on animals at any point
Does the job :)
first time using it (after Naturagard Ultra, with which I've NEVER had probs) but had 'fiber' forming. Still trying to get around how/what...
It is a widely used perservative though and I've heard little problems about it. Based on that - for now - I would still purchase it again (different batch) to see how that behaves before making up my mind to continue or seize use for myself. So, for now, I would still recommend the product and take my probs for a one-off.
Haven't used it yet, but the product seems to be good quality and was packaged securely for shipping.
Worked so well in my cream cleanser.
