New NEOLONE preservatives provide microbial control protection for personal care products

Customer demand for natural and organic products is growing at a rapid rate, but so is the need for safe and effective preservatives. Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of DowDuPont Specialty Products, has launched two new product lines within its NEOLONE personal care preservatives portfolio: NEOLONE Bio, based on naturally derived Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate (LAE) and NEOLONE PH Phenoxyethanol blends. Both product lines reflect Dow’s dedication to helping formulators, manufacturers and brand owners overcome the challenges of the modern personal care industry.

“Today, customer preferences and purchase decisions are more calculated than ever before, and closely aligned with health, wellness, and natural beauty trends,” said Wayne Ashton, Global Business Director for home and personal care at DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “Brand owners are looking for ingredients that satisfy consumer demands while maintaining desirable performance and have a positive health and safety profile. Our new NEOLONE preservatives help our customers ensure that their personal care formulations are safe, efficacious and remain free from microbial growth – ultimately helping win brand trust.”

NEOLONE Bio Preservatives
NEOLONE Bio products are based on the broad-spectrum, naturally derived personal care preservative Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate (LAE). LAE is non-sensitizing, non-irritating and readily bio-degradable, which makes it ideal for leave-on and rinse-off and some oral care applications

LAE is listed on Annex V of the European Commission Regulation and Annex VI of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive.

“Our NEOLONE Bio preservatives are designed for maximum efficiency and ease of use,” said Bahar Azimipour, global marketing manager for Dow Microbial Control. “Customers trust in our product innovation, regulatory knowledge and technical support, and can rest assured knowing that our products deliver the desired attributes.”

Dow Microbial Control has signed an exclusive supply agreement for LAE with Barcelona based LAMIRSA who owns the intellectual property around manufacturing and use of LAE in personal care products.

NEOLONE Phenoxyethanol Preservatives
NEOLONE PHCG and NEOLONE PHBC are broad-spectrum preservatives specifically designed for rinse-off and leave-on applications, such as face masks, creams, lotions, shampoo and wipes. Together, these innovative blends boast high-performance features for mild personal care formulations, including:

  • Optimized ratio of ingredients for cost efficiency
  • Efficacy at a broad range of PH
  • Low odour.
