NataPresTM - ECOCert Approved for use in Certified Organic products

NataPres is now constrained to reflect current stock-on-hand as we will no longer be continuing to carry this specific product any longer.

NataPresTM is an all natural compound with effective preservative properties, based on the synergy exhibited by multiple plant extracts. It combines a radish root ferment filtrate with honeysuckle and aspen bark extracts and gluconolactone in a base of glycerin. 

NataPresTM was developed for paraben-free preservation with effectiveness in a broad pH range.  It is easy to use and will not impart any additional color or odors to your formulation.

NataPresTMprovides predominantly a spectrum of activity again Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. In formulations tested by the manufacturer, it demonstrated activity against fungi and yeast when used at typical levels. However, additional protection against fungi and yeast may be necessary in some formulations. See the Technical Data for more information on Synergy Tests of  NataPresTM together with other anti-fungal ingredients.

NataPresTMhas been tested, via HPLC, for the presence of the following common preservatives: Methyl Paraben, Ethyl Paraben, Isopropyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Isobutyl Paraben, Butyl Paraben, Dehydroacetic Acid and Benzoic Acid.  None were identified within detectable limits, with the exception of Benzoic Acid (a natural constituent of Honeysuckle), which was found at 0.0014%.  Recent testing (2015) has determined that levels of formaldehyde found to be a approximately 1200 ppm (0.1%) in the NEAT NataPres product.  At a usage level of 1-2% this amount would yield levels below the detectability threshold and levels of concern for consumer products.  This was confirmed to be coming from the Japanese Honeysuckle extract and they believe that it is inherently and naturally present in the material and will likely be so going forward.  Their goal was always to produce a product that is formaldehyde-free if nature allowed it.  But, based on their testing, they do not have confidence that a completely formaldehyde-free claim can be made going forward.  You can see their full letter on the MSDS/Tech Data Tab.

No animal testing was used in the development or testing of NataPresTM

Formulation Guidelines

  • Recommended use level for cosmetic formulations: 0.5 - 2.5%
  • Potential anti-acne application at concentrations of 3.0% - 10.0% (based on MIC testing of p.acnes)
  • Can be added directly to the formulation post-emulsification at or below 50°C (122°F)
  • Effective in a broad pH range from 2 to 8
  • Compatible with most ingredients used in the personal care and pharmaceutical industry
  • Products which are highly prone to mold or yeast growth might need additional fungal protection

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.

WOW! How fun to make my own Quality skin care products. I'm financially challenged and I love that I can make a product that sells for $100 for a fraction of that! If you can follow a recipe, than you can follow these instructions.I recommend ordering the scale and paddle mixer, too. They're a time saver. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
