euxyl® PE 9010

euxyl® PE 9010 is a liquid cosmetic preservative based on phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin. The addition of ethylhexylglycerin affects the interfacial tension at the cell membrane of microorganisms, improving the preservative activity of phenoxyethanol.
Its use is permitted both in products that remain on the skin as well as in rinse-off products.                                         

  • good efficacy against bacteria, yeasts and moulds
  • mild, liquid blend for leave-on products including wet-wipes
