Vertellus Previews Freshstat PlusTM During In Cosmetics (London 2017)

Vertellus Previews Freshstat PlusTM During In Cosmetics (London 2017)  

New preservative technology delivers performance in liquid body washes and shampoos

 

(April 26, 2017, Indianapolis, Ind., USA) — Vertellus, a global manufacturer of fine and specialty chemicals, is introducing Freshstat PlusTM, a CPC-based (INCI: Cetylpyridinium Chloride) preservative, at In Cosmetics (London2017), April 4-6. The newest product development in the FreshstatTM family, Freshstat PlusTM has been especially designed as a preservative for anionic surfactant systems such as SLS and SLES.  The product contains proprietary technologies that naturally boost performance of FreshstatTM in surfactant-based systems, including shampoos and liquid body washes. These technologies allow Vertellus’ Freshstat PlusTM preservative system to address challenges commonly posed by select mold species in surfactant-based product formulations.

 

Introduced by Vertellus in 2015, FreshstatTM is an odorless, colorless liquid offering formulators a high degree of versatility due to its effectiveness across a broad pH range. Safety testing has shown that CPC is negative for skin sensitization potential and irritation at formulation levels up to 0.5 percent and CPC is widely used in a variety of leave-on and rinse-off personal care products. Vertellus representatives will be at In Cosmetics (London2017) to address developmental activity related to the technology and corresponding opportunities for formulators. 

 

According to Anahita Lion, Vertellus’ Global Business Manager Personal Care, the introduction of Freshstat PlusTM responds to increasingly stringent ingredient standards set by regulatory bodies around the globe who oversee personal care products. “FreshstatTM and Freshstat PlusTM are free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde-releasing substances and Isothiazolinone, providing assurance to both formulators and consumers,” said Lion. “The FreshstatTM family of products work across a breadth of delivery systems - including surfactant-based systems – providing a simplified, practical approach to formulators looking for safe, effective ingredients.”

 

While the FreshstatTM product line is a newcomer to the market, the product line is based on CPC – a trusted ingredient used in oral health care products in the U.S., Europe and Japan for more than 40 years and approved by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as a cosmetic ingredient. Additionally, the European Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) finalized a favorable safety opinion for CPC as a cosmetic and oral care preservative at prescribed levels.

 

The FreshstatTM family of products is manufactured by Vertellus’ Zeeland, Michigan (USA) facility under cGMP, Kosher and Halal conditions. Additional information on FreshstatTM and FreshstatTM Plus will be available at stand Q61 during In Cosmetics (London2017), April 4-6.
