euxyl® – preservation according to your needs

Preservatives for Cosmetics & Toiletries

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a preservative for your formula – different ingredients in the formula, pH value, type of packaging, countries where the product is to be sold, company policy – to name a few.

The large number of possible microorganisms, different packaging and storage conditions and the enormous diversity of raw materials used in cosmetics and toiletries imposes demands that cannot be met by just one substance used at an
acceptable dosage.

With the euxyl® product line schülke has developed a wide range of multi component preservative systems. The optimum combination of different active substances offers broad spectrum efficacy, reduces the potential of adverse toxicological findings, gives handling advantages and last but not least offers cost savings.
