Leucidal® Liquid

Leucidal® Liquid is

  • Now on the Whole Foods Acceptable Premium Preservative List
  • Approved for use as an ingredient in ECOCert Certified Organic products

Leucidal® Liquid is a natural preservative from Active Micro Technologies combining the current trends for alternative preservative systems and peptide technology. Derived from radishes fermented with Leuconostoc kimchii, a lactic acid bacteria that has traditionally been used to make kimchi, this product consists of an isolated peptide that is secreted from the bacteria during the fermentation process that has been shown to have antimicrobial benefits. Leucidal® Liquid is accepted by ECOcert as an ingredient in certified organic cosmetics.  It is also on Whole Foods Acceptable Premium Preservative List.

As with all biological materials some attention must be paid to the conditions under which Leucidal® Liquid can be used. Preliminary investigation shows that the material is stable with regard to temperature up to 60°C (140°F). Testing shows that the peptide remains active under both acidic and basic conditions, but there is a loss of activity at pH of 9.

For many cosmetic formulations Leucidal® Liquid can function as a natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. It may also be useful as a topical antimicrobial when addressing problem skin or scalp conditions. While it has only a slight odor, it will impart some color to clear cosmetic products, although it is still possible to formulate "white" emulsions.

Challenge testing reveals that 2% Leucidal® Liquid in a cream base is able to successfully inhibit microbial growth. Samples were inoculated with S. aureus, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, C. albicans, A. niger, K. pneumoniae, B. cepacia. Following 28 days of incubation samples were then re-inoculated for an additional 28 days. Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) were determined using a standard agar dilution method. A variety of bacteria and fungus were tested to evaluate the ability of Leucidal® Liquid to protect against microbial contamination. The results indicate that Leucidal® Liquid can provide effective protection for certain cosmetic systems.

Use with AMTicide Coconut for added protection against yeast and mold!

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 just wanted to say thank you to Jen for the fantastic customer service, and for saving me $$$ on my shipping. My order was placed May 6 and it arrived at my door this morning May 12 !!! Thank you so much
Joanna White

I placed my first order a couple of days ago. It arrived today. Everything is professionally labeled and packaged. Thank you! I will be back. Nancy
Nancy Babbs, (Bellevue Organics)

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
Margaret

I have ordered from LotionCrafters several times and been more than happy each time. Shipping was very fast, the order was perfect each time, and everything was wonderfully well packed - nothing has ever leaked or been damaged in transit. I will order from LC as long as I am making some of my own products - could not be happier with the service, products or company!
