sensiva® SC 50 is a globally approved, versatile and multifunctional additive, as well as a very effective deodorant active. As an emollient, it improves the skin feel of cosmetic formulations.
sensiva® SC 50 reliably inhibits the growth and multiplication of odour-causing bacteria, while at the same time not affecting the beneficial skin flora. Additionally, it can boost the efficacy of traditional preservatives and act as anti-microbial stabiliser in combination with other cosmetic ingredients.

sensiva® SC 50 can contribute to the antimicrobial stability of a cosmetic formulation. The values given are recommended guidelines. For the use as antimicrobial stabiliser the optimum level should be evaluated by means of a repeated challenge test (e.g. at schülke Technical and Microbiological department).
