The Glycacil range is compatible with ingredients such as phenoxyethanol and provides preservation at low incorporation levels. The company reports the ingredients are highly active against fungal growth over a wide pH range.

The IPBC products come in a liquid form to add during any step of the manufacturing process, at cold or elevated temperatures of < 50°C, and in addition to bactericides such as phenoxyethanol, as needed. Primarily biodegradable, the ingredients also meet the criteria for halal, vegan and GMO-free claims.
