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.

Our Customers Say...
I've used Lotioncrafter on a number of occasions, and always found the products to be top quality and good value for money. Jen has always provided great support and helped me to straighten out problems with credit cards and delivery (I live outside the USA). I would recommend Lotioncrafter wholeheartedly to anyone seeking top quality cosmetic ingredients at affordable (and very competitive) prices. Thanks again Jen!
Greg Oxnard, (Oxnards)

I can't say enough about Lotion Crafter - not only is their shipping and turn around time AMAZING - their customer service is out of this world. Any questions - they are there for you with friendly knowledgeable answers! Thank you so much for all your hard work!
Rebecca Holland, (Holland Homestead Farm)

I recently received my latest order from Lotioncrafter, quickly as always, even though it is a very busy time of the year. As usual, the products did not disappoint in any way. I must however comment on this Shea Nilotica I purchased. It is the most amazing shea butter I've ever used and I've tried them all. This shea butter is extremely creamy, softer than any others, with very little scent and has absolutely no graininess. It is truly amazing stuff

Jenny is a very helpful technical person. I was only looking for something simple such as sodium hydroxide and shampoo thickener. And Jenny went all the extra miles explaining over the phone for these two ingredients. She is a very, very helpful and knowledgeable person. Thank you Jenny!!!
Edmund, (Excel Creation Inc.)

The best customer service experience I have had in the last 10 years. Based on this alone you have become my number one go to supplier for my cosmetic ingredients.
Not only did you save me time, you also helped me to save money.
