Like butterflies assist with pollen dispersal for flowers, euxyl® K 900 contains a multifunctional preservative booster to increase the microbiological stability of your formulations. This new product is a versatile, cost-effective solution for your leave-on, wet wipe and sensitive formulas.

euxyl® K 900 is the latest addition to schülke’s family of gentle preservation systems, including euxyl® PE 9010 and sensiva® PA 20. These products all share the same preservative boosting ingredient, leading to effective preservation at low concentration levels.

schülke introduces the latest in its line of enhanced preservative systems, euxyl® K 940. euxyl® K 940 contains an intelligent combination of preservative actives with the emollient and booster, ethylhexylglycerin, to deliver a product of superior performance for a wide range of product types. It can be used at low levels when formulating products for sensitive skin. Hard-to-preserve systems can be formulated using higher levels without the danger of exceeding regulatory limits.

euxyl® K 940 is globally approved, virtually colorless, with a very low odor. It is stable to hydrolysis and pH and can be used in most formulation types.

schülke announces the relaunch of its euxyl® K 903, now with natural tocopherol, to meet the needs of formulators to have a preservative that works efficiently, yet is natural and gentle enough for sensitive product applications. Based on naturally occurring ingredients, and now stabilized with natural tocopherol, euxyl® K 903 meets the requirements of many certification bodies, including Ecocert, NATRUE and COSMOS.

The combination of benzyl alcohol with organic acids in euxyl® K 903 is an extremely effective preservative, yet gentle enough for eye-area products where the reduction of sting potential is important. euxyl® K 903 is also an excellent choice for use in baby wipes and other products, where mild gentleness to the skin is required.
