Dermorganics® 1388 is a convenient blend of plant-derived organic acids with broad antimicrobial activity. Combination with antimicrobial surface-active Preservative - DO 1388 substance (e.g. Glyceryl Caprylate) is recommended to improve the performance of the product. This is a PALM FREE product.




Preservative - DO 1388 active principle is based on a blend of plant-derived compounds mixed with plant-derived glycerol in organic quality. When using in surfactant based products, the masking organic acids bring in an additional broad antimicrobial activity. Recommended usage level is 2  - 4%. Dr Straetmans claim the subtle scent of Dermorganics® 1388 will help mask any residual raw material odours while not interfering with the overall product fragrance. The manufacturer claims that adding Dermorganics® 1388 at levels up to 4% can convert many cosmetic creations into self-preserving products without the need to add any other preservatives.
