ISP's first globally approved preservative in the Optiphen family developed as an alternative for personal care formulations requiring a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative system. Optiphen consists of Phenoxyethanol in an emollient base of Caprylyl Glycol. The combination of these ingredients provides optimized protection against microbial growth while imparting exceptional feel to the finished product.

Optiphen can be used in a wide variety of personal care products including aqueous and anhydrous systems and emulsions. It can be added directly to the formulation during pre- or post-emulsification at or below 60°C (140°F). While ISP's original brochures indicated there were no pH restrictions with Optiphen, they are now showing it best used between pH 4.0 - 8.0.   It is compatible with most raw materials.

Recommended use levels: 0.5 - 1.5%.
Appearance: Clear liquid
Effective pH range: pH 4.0 - 8.0
INCI: Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol.

I have been a client for a few years now and during this period I have had a chance to use many suppliers. I can state emphatically that no other company comes close to servicing our needs or is as responsive to our requests as Lotioncrafter.
Kudos to Jen and her team
