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.

Thanks

Absolutely the best supplier of raw ingredients all around; not least because of the exceptional customer service and freely-shared knowledge of the owner, Jen. She was obviously born to do this, and I'm thankful for that pretty much every time I place and order or contact her with a question (frequently, in other words). Great, informative website too, and competitive prices. This is always the first site I visit when ordering.
