we protect your formulations, we protect lives worldwide

sensiva® PA 30 is a multifunctional cosmetic additive. The moisturizer propanediol improves the skin feel of formulations while enhancing the efficacy of the antimicrobial stabilizing components. Undecyl alcohol acts as an excellent booster for the antimicrobial properties of phenethyl alcohol and significantly reduces its flowery, rose-like scent. The faint scent of sensiva® PA 30 can mask possible unpleasant odors of other ingredients in formulations. sensiva® PA 30 can effectively stabilize cosmetic formulations against typical microbiological contamination. The combination of naturally-derived and nature-identical ingredients makes it an excellent choice for nature-inspired cosmetics. sensiva® PA 30 can contribute to the antimicrobial stability of a cosmetic formulation.

More about sensiva® PA 30:


Many naturally-occurring substances have antimicrobial properties. These materials tend to be more organism-specific and have color and odor issues that are not found in their synthetically-produced counterparts. Their natural growing cycles and other environmental variations can have a significant effect on their activity level. An alternative to natural material use that is finding increasing acceptance is the use of nature-identical substances. These synthetic materials are chemically identical to materials found in nature. However, activity level, color and odor can often be more easily controlled and standardized. The consistency and availability of the materials can also be managed to create a more sustainable formulation. sensiva® PA 30 contains nature-identical phenethyl alcohol, a fragrance component found in many essential oils. This material has been found to have antimicrobial activity similar to the more commonly used, traditional preservative phenoxyethanol.

The antimicrobial activity of phenethyl alcohol can be boosted by the addition of other nature-identical materials. In its natural form, undecyl alcohol can be found in many fruits, including apples, bananas and citrus fruits. The undecyl alcohol contained in sensiva® PA 30 acts as an excellent booster for the antimicrobial properties of phenethyl alcohol and significantly reduces its flowery, rose-like scent (patent pending). The faint scent of sensiva® PA 30 can mask possible unpleasant odors of other ingredients in formulations.

The natural content in sensiva® PA 30, propanediol, is derived from corn. This well-known moisturizer improves the skin feel of formulations while enhancing the efficacy of antimicrobial compounds. The combination of naturally-derived propanediol with nature-identical phenethyl alcohol and undecyl alcohol in sensiva® PA 30 can effectively stabilize cosmetic formulations against typical microbiological contamination. This combination of naturally-derived and nature-identical ingredients makes it an excellent choice for nature-inspired cosmetics.

Challenge tests performed on a variety of cosmetic formulations show sensiva® PA 30 to be an effective antimicrobial stabilizer at a use level of 1-2%. With sensiva® PA 30, schülke has formulated a nature-inspired multifunctional cosmetic additive that is peerless protection for leave-on, wet-wipe, and sensitive applications.
