Botanigenics Introduces Preservative System

Posted: February 14, 2006
Botanigenics, Inc. announced the commercial introduction of Botanistat PF-64, a globally approved, paraben- and formaldehyde-free preservative system for the personal care and toiletry industries. This proprietary ingredient is based on a blend of biocide components in an emollient base for optimized preservation in a variety of applications and products. Botanistat PF-64, according to the company, provides comprehensive protection from microbial contamination—including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi, yeasts and molds. In addition, Botanistat PF-64 features skin conditioning properties that enhance the product's mildness and aesthetics during and after application. Third party testing was conducted to confirm its efficacy and safety.
