Symrise launches paraben alternative

Hydrolite 6 complies with Danish ruling on children’s skin care products

At the end of 2010, the Danish government announced that it was banning propyl and butyl paraben in cosmetic products designed for children under the age of three. In response, Symrise has launched Hydrolite 6, which offers an alternative to manufacturers of skin care products for children. The ingredient is claimed to boost the preservative efficacy of mild organic acids such as potassium sorbate and dehydroacetate, making the use of parabens unnecessary.

Hydrolite 6 is nearly odourless and colourless, soluble in water and many cosmetic esters, stable at extreme temperatures and pH values, and does not affect the stability of emulsions. It has also been proven to boost the skin’s moisture content.
