Lonza’s Glycacil 2000 and Glycacil L preservatives (INCIs: Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate or IPBC) are designed to replace parabens in personal care formulations.
The Glycacil range is compatible with ingredients such as phenoxyethanol and provides preservation at low incorporation levels. The company reports the ingredients are highly active against fungal growth over a wide pH range.
The IPBC products come in a liquid form to add during any step of the manufacturing process, at cold or elevated temperatures of < 50°C, and in addition to bactericides such as phenoxyethanol, as needed. Primarily biodegradable, the ingredients also meet the criteria for halal, vegan and GMO-free claims.
