performance — by design

euxyl® PE 9010 is a liquid cosmetic preservative based on phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin. The addition of ethylhexylglycerin affects the interfacial tension at the cell membrane of microorganisms, improving the preservative activity of phenoxyethanol.

euxyl® PE 9010 is equally effective against bacteria, yeasts and mold fungi. It is a typically biostatic product with the biocidal properties necessary for practical use.

For euxyl® PE 9010 to perform effectively in destroying organisms in products already contaminated a minimum contact time of 48 hours is necessary. Since the effect of euxyl® PE 9010 takes place through chemical reactions with the microorganisms when it is used in heavily contaminated products loss of active ingredient must be taken into account.

Good production hygiene as well as the use of raw materials with low microorganism levels as a result of correct raw material control are of course vital prerequisites for the production of microbiologically faultless finished products.

euxyl® PE 9010 is stable to hydrolysis, temperature and pH.
As a result of the good solubility of euxyl® PE 9010 an easy dispersion in the various systems even at low temperature is possible. euxyl® PE 9010 is effective in pH-ranges up to 12.
