AMTicide® Coconut   New Lower Odor!
CAS Number:
  68333-16-4 & 8001-31-8 

AMTicide® Coconut is a new patent-pending product from Active Micro Technologies developed by fermenting Cocos nucifera (Coconut) fruit with Lactobacillus to deliver a non-irritating, effective and multifunctional product which can provide moisturizing and conditioning benefits in hair and skin care applications.  In addition, it is effective at preventing the growth of fungus, specifically yeast and mold, thus providing additional protection for formulations using natural preservatives systems.

AMTicide® Coconut was developed to be used in conjunction with Active Micro Technology's broad-spectrum antimicrobials like Leucidal® Liquid and Leucidal® Liquid SF, but it can be used alongside any preservative system for extra protection against yeast and mold. They began investigating the antimicrobial effects of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which have been studied for years.  MCTs, including lauric acid, have natural antifungal activity and work by disrupting the cellular structures of fungus, thus essentially destroying them before they can wreak havoc.  This led to an exotic oil that is rich in MCTs - the well-known coconut oil.  Lauric acid comprises more than 50% of the total fatty acid content of this oil. 

AMTicide® Coconut was developed using the lipid fractions of coconut pericarp and Advanced Micro Technologies' specialty technique of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) fermentation which increases the bioavailability of natural phytocompounds. The resulting fermentation was found to have natural antifungal properties in addition to its moisturizing and conditioning benefits. 

The choice of preservatives for personal care formulations should be carefully considered. This is especially true when using natural antimicrobials and or other “mild” antimicrobials.  We recommend that every formula undergo stability and microbial testing to ensure adequate preservation.

Our Customers Say...
I affectionately refer to Jennifer as "Jenny on the block" even though I am located in Denver. Her service is excellent and I have found no other web-based supplier that takes such great pride in ensuring that you have the highest quality products and most complete technical information available. Jenny, you ROCK!!!
Cynthia, (Just For You)

Hi, I just wanted to express how happy I am with Lotioncrafter. I have ordered from them three times and this last time I mistakenly put through the wrong shipping address in my order. I called and spoke to Jen and she corrected it immediately. I was very pleased with her efficiency that I had to come in write my own testimonial, something I don't usually do.

The last 2 orders arrived in a timely fashion but this one has taken a little longer because of the memorial day weekend. I knew it was going to be shipped late because on the site, they let the customers know that shipping would be delayed as a result of the holiday. I was very happy with this as well - at least I knew about the possible delay ahead of time.

Thanks Jen for always providing stellar customer service.
Agatha Almace

Doris Vienneau, (None)

Lotioncrafter has been and continues to be one of the most efficiently run and dependable soap and lotion ingredient companies I purchase from. Even shipping from Washington State to Texas, I know my order will be processed promptly and correctly and will arrive within a week of being placed (many times within a couple of days!). Kudos to Jenny and her staff! Caroline Lawson, TLC Farms, Franklin, TX
