NeoDefendTM

In today’s market, companies are seeking alternatives to traditional preservatives. NeoDefendTM is a preservative designed to meet those needs. Instead of a harsh, aggressive approach with bacteria and fungi, NeoDefendTM helps prevent product spoilage by utilizing less aggressive “Hurdle Technology” to create a more hostile environment within the formulation for microbes to overcome. NeoDefend’s potentiators help create such hurdles, helping to increase the self-preservation of formulations.

 
Derived from ingredients granted GRAS status (Generally Regarded As Safe), NeoDefend’s ingredients are accepted by ECOCERT as preservatives in certified organic cosmetics. Consisting of a blend of gluconolactone, sodium benzoate and calcium gluconate, it offers broad spectrum protection in cosmetic and personal care formulations.
 
A gluten-free fermented food starch derived from non genetically-modified corn via a fermentation process with non genetically-modified microorganisms, gluconolactone finds use in the food and cosmetic industry as a moisturizer, antioxidant and chelant. Considered a next generation AHA, Gluconolactone is a Polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that is found in its final state in bee’s honey. It is generally considered suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and is non-irritating and antioxidant. Given their ability to condition and hydrate skin, Gluconolactone-containing formulations may even smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
 
Sodium benzoate is a preservative with bacteriostatic and fungistatic properties under acidic conditions (pH should be 6 or below). Calcium gluconate is added at a very low level as an inert flow agent.

Formulating Information
  • NeoDefendTM is fully compatible with a wide variety of formulation ingredients as well as most types of cationic, nonionic and anionic systems.
  • NeoDefendTM can be used effectively over a wide pH range of 3 to 6.
  • Due to its heat stability, NeoDefendTM may be added to the water phase of formulations early in the compounding process.
  • Can be added at cool down, in the final phase of processing, although it should be pre-dissolved in a portion of the water prior to addition to the batch.
  • In some formulations, NeoDefendTM has been found to cause a pH drift downwards. In such situations, sodium citrate or phosphate buffers can be used to stabilize the pH.
There is some concern that  Sodium Benzoate, one of the ingredients in NeoDefend, in combination with L-Ascorbic Acid in products can form Benzene, a known human carcinogen. The presence of ascorbic acid and benzoates alone does not lead to the formation of benzene.  Certain additional conditions are required for trace levels of benzene to form, including heat, ultraviolet light and metallic ions in the mixture. Therefore, a product containing ascorbic acid and benzoates will not necessarily contain any detectable levels of benzene.  The use of EDTA, which chelates metallic ions can therefore be of assistance in the inhibition of benzene formation.  However, because of the potential to form benzene, we recommend that NeoDefend not be used combination with L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).  Citric Acid is not thought to induce significant benzene production in combination with Benzoic Acid, but some evidence suggests that in the presence of ascorbic acid and benzoic acid, citric acid may accelerate the production of benzene.  Therefore, the use of NeoDefend and L-Ascorbic Acid and Citric Acid in the same cosmetic formulations should be avoided.

Our Customers Say...
Man! I love this company!!!! The shipping is the fastest I've ever seen literally :-) this is my second time ordering and both times it only took 3 days and was processed and shipped the same day I order! I must say impressive!!!! And not only that you guys have the best unrefined Shea butter ever! So creamy and smells amazing! I cant be without, so here I am two weeks later ordering 4lbs of unrefined sweet smelling Shea & trying out the cocoa butter im sure it will be just as good. Please don't stop your amazing services!!!! Love this company, thank you from my whole family...
Ashley G.

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!
