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 just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.
