Iscaguard products Iscaguard Parabens and Liquid Paraben Blends The Iscaguard range includes high purity grades of methyl, ethyl, propyl, and butyl parabens, as well as their sodium salts. With outstanding efficacy, a long history of safe use, cost effectiveness and universal compatibility, parabens are an excellent choice of preservative for many personal care formulations. For ease of use, Isca also offers liquid paraben blends. These products have been carefully designed to provide synergistic, broad spectrum activity, while being easy to incorporate into finished products.

Iscaguard Paraben Free Liquid Blends A range of multi-active preservative blends exhibiting broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. Supplied as easy to use, readily dispersible liquids. The inclusion of organic acids offers environmental benefits, alongside more traditional systems ensuring the formulator can achieve the highest level of protection.

Iscaguard Multifunctional Additives A range of ingredients that can be added to formulations as preservative boosters or in combinations of multifunctional cosmetic materials, some offering the formulator “preservative-free” protection. This range also includes natural preservatives with eco-certified status.

Iscaguard Antibacterial additives Products designed and formulated to reduce the risk of bacterial cross-contamination when added to formulations offering infection control.
