LipoFresh™ is a naturally-derived emollient with antimicrobial properties, useful as a functional triclosan replacement and protection system for formulations. The product is a synergistic solution of Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate Laurate and Glyceryl Laurate in either a propylene glycol (LipoFresh™ PG) or pentylene glycol (Lipo- Fresh™ PTG) solvent. This patented and patent pending technology utilizes a controlled release bio-active salt for extended efficacy over a long period of time. In vitro studies demonstrated activity against several classes of gram positive and gram negative bacteria as well as yeasts and mold. LipoFresh™ PTG was as effective as triclosan at similar use levels. Efficacy has been demonstrated in both aqueous and emulsion systems.
