INCI: Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol

Microcare PHG is an excellent choice for formulations that require a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative system. Microcare PHG consists of phenoxyethanol in an emollient base of Caprylyl Glycol. It is a direct substitute for the popular preservative Optiphen. 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.
Formulating Guidelines:
● Microcare PHG is suitable for anhydrous formulations and emulsions, such as creams, lotions, salves, body butters, and body scrubs.
● Microcare PHG is heat stable and can be added directly to the heated phase. However, it can destabilize some emulsions so for most emulsions, we recommend that it to be added during the POST-emulsification stage at or below 37.7°C 
● There are no pH restrictions and it is compatible with most raw materials.
● Microcare PHG is not very water-soluble and is therefore NOT recommended for all hydrous products. Recommended Use Levels: 0.5% - 1.5%

This product is intended for external use only
