Caprylyl Glycol (and) Propanediol
INOLEX Incorporated makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:
Lexgard® O-EZ is a blend of multifunctional ingredients that allows formulators to use hurdle technology to create self-preserving formulations. Lexgard® O-EZ includes caprylyl glycol, a light, medium spreading emollient that also has antimicrobial properties, and propanediol a humectant with antimicrobial boosting properties. Lexgard® O-EZ is a liquid solution form of caprylyl glycol and unlike pure caprylyl glycol it does not need to be heated and melted before use. Lexgard® O-EZ remains fully homogenous liquid at temperatures as low as 0⁰C, and thus is very easy to use in a production setting. Lexgard® O-EZ is especially useful in cold-process applications, such as toiletries and wet wipes. By using Lexgard® O-EZ in the practice of hurdle technology, formulations that pass challenge tests can be created without the inclusion of traditional preservatives such as parabens, isothiazolinones and formaldehyde donors. A formulation strategy that includes Lexgard® O-EZ may be used to achieve preservative-free and paraben-free claims. Lexgard® O-EZ is a multifunctional emollient, moisturizer and preservative that can confer benefits in cosmetic emulsion systems. Suggested uses are in skin care creams and lotions, or in surfactant-based products such as shower gels, bubble baths, and shampoos. Lexgard® O-EZ has a recommended use level of 1.0% - 1.5%. When Lexgard® O-EZ is used in emulsions, it is recommended that it be incorporated into the water phase.
