Microcare PHG* is an excellent choice for anhydrous or emulsion formulations that require a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative system.
Microcare PHG consists of phenoxyethanol in an emollient base of Caprylyl Glycol. The combination of these ingredients provides optimized protection against microbial growth from both bacteria and yeast while imparting a pleasant feel to the finished product.
Microcare PHG is heat stable and can be added directly to the heated phase. However, it can destabilise some emulsions so for most emulsions, we recommend that it be added during the POST-emulsification stage at or below 37.7°C
