Troy Corp. created a series of customized broad-spectrum preservative blends for personal care applications. TroyCare FE allows the formulator to select one of three broad-spectrum blends with varying levels of iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (IPBC) in phenoxyethanol for their formulations, thus allowing them to tailor their preservation to reduce costs.
Three different blend ratios are offered: TroyCare FE003 with 0.3% IPBC, TroyCare FE01 with 1.0% IPBC and TroyCare FE02 with 2.0% IPBC. The blends are supplied in a liquid form.
For example, TroyCare FE02 is used to preserve shampoos, conditioners, creams, lotions, sun screens, makeup and many other personal care cosmetics and toiletries. It has global approvals (including Japan) for rinse-off and leave-on products. It is compatible with cationic, anionic, and nonionic surfactants
The blends provide antibacterial and antifungal performance and have excellent safety profiles, as well as global regulatory approval.
