Multifunctional antimicrobial ingredient


Versatile, cost-effective, and easy to use alternative to conventional preservatives

INCI name: 

Caprylyl Glycol, Phenylpropanol


  • MinaSolve

EasySafe P8 (Minasolve®) is a multifunctional ingredient that creates self-preserving cosmetics within a wide pH-range. It is a versatile, cost-effective, and easy to use alternative to conventional preservatives.

The synergism between caprylyl glycol (a humectant) and phenylpropanol (an aroma component) affords broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, with particularly good activity against fungi. 

Since EasySafe P8 is non-ionic, its activity is also relatively unaffected over a wide pH range (3-10) and is effective in emulsions and surfactant products. It is supplied as a liquid that is soluble in aqueous solutions of surfactants, and miscible with polar oils and alcohols.
