Jeecide CAP-5 is a synthetic, palm free preservative. It is a paraben-free and formaldehyde-free broad spectrum preservative.
Jeecide CAP-5 is compatible with anionic, cationic and non-ionic emulsifiers and surfactants. It is toxicologically safe for use. It is effective in difficult to preserve water/silicone emulsions.
INCI: Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Potassium Sorbate (and) Aqua (and) Hexylene Glycol
Recommended usage level: 0.5 - 1.5% in the cool down phase.
It is suggested not to add this blend to a product at a temperature exceeding 70 - 75°C for extended time periods. For emulsion products, because of the excellent compatibility of this blend with most ingredients, incorporation of it during the cool-down phase of processing is preferred. It is soluble or dispersible in most non-polar materials. Jeecide CAP-5 is not water soluble however for highly aqueous systems, the addition of a cosolvent, coupling agent or surfactant (eg. Polysorbate 20) in a 1:1 ratio will make it water soluble to obtain a clear system.
