Optiphen HD preservative booster is a global multifunctional additive. The 1,2-Alkanediol can be combined with very low doses of preservatives to effectively preserve personal care formulations acting as preservative potentiator.

When used with other cosmetic ingredients, Optiphen™ HD may work as an antimicrobial stabilizer. Based on 1,2-Hexanediol, it can be used in a variety of cosmetic formulations. Optiphen HD is well known and liked in personal care applications due to its balanced way of boosting preservative activity and imparting emolliency while being active over a wide pH range (2.0 – 10). It is considered a very effective humectant.

Optiphen HD can be added at any phase of production. In emulsions, diols should be added at the post-emulsification stage to enhance their availability at the water/oil interface. Usually, no effect on colour or smell can be observed. Heating process up to 80°C are tolerated well. This preservative usually has no impact on emulsion stability or gel structures.
