Expanded Microbial Control Portfolio

With Ashland’s acquisition of the personal care portfolio from Schülke & Mayr GmbH, ChemPoint now offers additional microbial protection ingredients. This product range includes classic, long-established preservatives, progressive preservatives based on aromatic alcohols and organic acids, natural and nature-derived preservatives, preservative boosters, and antimicrobial multifunctionals.

Microbial Control Products


The Euxyl™ brand from Ashland offers a wide range of multicomponent preservative systems that protect cosmetic products from microbial contamination. All products provide a broad, balanced spectrum effective against bacteria, yeast, and mold. They are available in easy and safe-to-use liquid forms and are effective over a wide pH range.


Sensiva™ is a range of multifunctional cosmetic additives. They improve skin care properties, enhance the antimicrobial efficacy of preservatives, act as humectants, and provide additional value to personal care formulations. Sensiva™ multifunctionals also combat odor-causing bacteria, making them effective active ingredients in deodorants.


Effisin™ multifunctionals provide antimicrobial activity with moisturizing and emolliency benefits for the skin. In addition, many of these grades are natural, contributing to better naturality for cosmetic formulations.


The Sensidin™ brand of multifunctionals inhibits the growth and multiplication of odor-causing bacteria. These effective deodorant actives provide 24–48 hour protection while being gentle to the skin.
