Antimicrobial

Antimicrobial Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Antimicrobial: antimicrobials are a group of chemicals and ingredients that kill microorganisms and halt their growth. Antimicrobial agents are often active against a wide variety of microorganisms, like fungi, yeasts, molds and bacteria. IngreCore has a wide range of antimicrobial ingredients for example Ingrephen PCGS, Ingrephen PCG10, Ingrephen PCG35 and Ingrephen PCG45. 

Microorganisms pose a threat to formulations in the Personal Care and Cleaning industries, but also in a wide range of other industries (food, pharmaceuticals, coatings etc.). All of these industries benefit from preventing microbial growth in their products. Mainly because of the hygiene risks caused by foreign, unknown microbes, but microbes can also impact the aesthetic and processing properties of the final formulation.
