Euxyl® K 703

Euxyl® K 703 is on backorder with the manufacturer and is due in stock some time in mid-December.  This product still has not shipped from the manufacturer in Germany and the backorder is beyond our control.

Euxyl® K 703 is a complete preservative system and is paraben free and formaldehyde free. It is effective against both Gram-positve and Gram-negative bacteria, mold, and yeast. 

It is a mild globally-approved preservative consisting of a liquid blend of phenoxyethanol, benzoic acid, and dehydroacetic acid.

Benzoic acid is a simple aromatic carboxylic acid widely distributed in nature in the free state or in the form of salts.  Appreciable amounts are found in gum benzoin, in cranberries, and other like berries. The free acid is found in prunes, ripe cloves and oil of anise seeds.  In addition to being used for cosmetic preservation, it is also used as a preservatives in foods, for pharmaceutical and medicinal uses and as an ingredient in antiseptic ointments for treatment of fungal infections of the skin.

Dehydroacetic acid is a cyclic ketone acid which has anti-fungal and some antibacterial properties. 

Applications

Euxyl® K 703 is recommended for use in multiple personal care products including shower gels, shampoos, body washes, creams, lotions, and wet wipes.  It is not suitable for anhydrous products.  Due to the presence of the organic acids in the system, Euxyl® K 703 offers broad spectrum protection against bacteria, yeast, and mold and is effective in applications where the pH is not above 6.0.

Formulation Guidelines

  • Euxyl® K 703 is fully effective both in anionic as well as cationic and non-ionic systems
  • Offers good head space protection in packaging
  • Euxyl® K 703 has limited solubility in water and non-polar solvents.
  • Euxyl® K 703 exhibits no interaction with sulphite ions
  • Euxyl® K 703, in the presence of iron ions, e.g. from mineral thickeners, may result in yellow discoloration of a formula
  • The recommended pH range for formulations is between pH 3 - 6.  Efficacy is increased by reducing the pH value of the final formulation.
  • Prolonged heating periods greater than 176°F/80°C should be avoided.  It is advantageous to add Euxyl® K 703 in the cooling phase, e.g. with the fragrance, at less than 104°F/40°C.
  • In aqueous products with low emulsifier content, intensive mixing is recommended to achieve a uniform dispersal of the preservative.

Euxyl® K 703 contains:

  • Phenoxyethanol          78.0 - 84.0%
  • Benzoic Acid              11.0 - 13.0%
  • Dehydroacetic Acid     6.5 -   7.5%

While Euxyl® K 703 is classified as a "mild" preservative as formulated, the raw material should be handled with care as the full strength preservative causes severe eye irritation and may cause tissue damage.  Read the MSDS before use and follow recommended guidelines for handling, including Safety Goggles!

Our Customers Say...
I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.
Nancy Liedel, (Makeup by Nancy)

The Shea Nilotica is awesome! Thanks for the sample... that sold me. You have been so helpful and I get so much great information from your site. Your formulary has prompted me to try a few new things. Love it! I'm a new customer but have already referred several people to you. Don't change a thing! I'm counting on you! lol

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!).
