Caprylhydroxamic Acid GCG
CAS No. 7377-03-9, 26402-26-6, 56-81-5

Contains only ingredients acceptable on the Whole Foods Premier Ingredient list!

Caprylhydroxamic Acid GCG is a 100% natural cosmetic antimicrobial blend based on caprylhydroxamic acid, glyceryl caprylate and glycerin. It utilizes hurdle technology to offer excellent biostatic and fungistatic activity.

Unlike many antimicrobials, it is effective even at neutral pH, as caprylhydroxamic acid remains active even at high pH. Caprylhydroxamic Acid is also a powerful chelator for iron. Microorganisms have been shown to have reduced survival rates in iron-limited environments.

Glyceryl Caprylate is a multi-functional, high purity monoester of glycerin and caprylic acid that combines excellent skin compatibility with remarkable effects against microorganisms. While primarily effective against gram-positive bacteria, yeast and mold, its efficacy against gram-negative bacteria is potentiated by the chelating effects of Capryhydroxamic Acid in the blend.

This antimicrobial blend is ideal for those wanting to make preservative-free and/or paraben-free and formaldehyde-free claims. It is 100% natural and its ingredients are on Whole Foods Premier Ingredient list.

Good production hygiene as well as the use of raw materials with low microorganism levels, as a result of correct raw material control, are vital prerequisites for the production of microbiologically faultless finished products.

Our Customers Say...
I placed my order on Monday, July 12th and received the order on Wednesday, July 14th. I was really pleased with the quick arrival, the care that each item was packed with and the very nice and useful items Jenny sent with my order as a thank you.

So many thanks for your efficiency, kindness, and great products,

Jen, you have bailed me out a bunch of times because you are so close:).
I never hesitate to tell anyone about Lotioncrafter for lotion formulating and other specialty items.
Your helpful nature and willingness to share knowledge makes you a hands on, person I turn to for my really tough formulating questions.
Thanks for being there Jen!

I have never been so moved to show appreciation as i am right now. i can't believe my order was so speedy; and with just the standard shipping too! i received it within 5d on the dot to Canada using USPS.

And if the service wasn't enough i must say i am completely in love with everything i ordered. I couldn't imagine the Shea Nilotica being much different from the standard shea you can get everywhere else but it's like night and day! i can't even look at my remaining shea anymore because it pales in comparison. the Shea Nilotica is so silky, never gets clumpy or grainy and goes on so smooth it felt like a spa treatment. My other favourite is the SheaAloe which at first seemed like a miss; i was expecting a thicker, more creamy feel but it's quite thin. What surprises me about it though is that even though it does not go on thick, it is incredibly incredibly moisturizing and is very readily absorbed into my thick african hair.

i'll be ordering more of the Shea Nilotica (the 5gallon bucket this time) and likely some product continers as well. Thank you once again for being awesome.

I just completed my fourth order with Lotioncrafter. I know it will arrive here quickly. This company and Jen provide THE BEST customer support and service from any company I have ever used. Jen is so helpful for questions about the products and how to use them as well. The formulary is very useful. This is a top notch company. I believe that they are honest and provide quality products at a reasonable price. I trust them and will continue to order from them. Order from here, maybe even try something new. I know you will be so glad you did. I am hoping they will sell essential oils someday. Then I would not have to shop for this type of crafting supplies anywhere else.
