With the three established humectants sodium lactate, betaine and propanediol in optimally balanced concentrations, Cosphaderm® Absolute ensures excellent skin hydration. Besides these three substances share a strong hygroscopicity, which lowers the water activity and thus the availability of water for microorganisms at the recommended use concentrations.
The blend combines skin barrier-enhancing properties with a unique antimicrobial mode of action, offering the possibility of an innovative, alternative preservation strategy that meets market needs and current trends in the cosmetics industry.
The efficacy of the product was demonstrated in a vehicle-controlled study and the antimicrobial effect has been proven in numerous challenge tests. The COSMOS- and NATRUE-compliant blend enables a wide range of applications in skin and hair care thanks to its pH-value independence and skin barrier-properties.
