Caprocine (Minasolve) is a mild and multi-functional ingredient for the cleansing of skin and scalp. It also has anti-microbial properties that make it useful as a co-preservative to enhance product protection.

  • An anti-acne ingredient that reduces sebum production and inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium  acnes. It inhibits the 5α-reductase - a key enzyme in the regulation of sebum production.
  • Reduces dandruff formation thanks to its anti-microbial activity against the yeast Malassezia furfur (Pityrosporum ovale), and it simultaneously reduces fatty scalp.
  • Caprocine can act as a deodorant agent,  as it inhibits the growth of bacteria which are involved  in the  formation of body odour (such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus subtilis, Micrococcus luteus, as well as different Corynebacteria).
  • Caprocine  can  help  to protect  cosmetic  formulations.  It  can  be  combined  with  preservative boosters to enhance their performance or even substitute traditional preservatives. 

Caprocine is supplied as a powder and is recommended at use levels from 0.5% to 2.0% within a pH range of 4.0 to 7.0. It has wide global regulatory acceptance and is approved by Ecocert.
