  title={Caprylyl Glycol/Phenethyl Alcohol Blend for Alternative Preservation of Cosmetics},
  author={Paola Ziosi and Stefano Manfredini and Alberta Vandini and Silvia Vertuani and Massimo Fraternali},
In recent years, the safety of traditional preservatives has been called into question. Therefore, there is a need for alternatives that are effective, safe and sustainable—and that are non-controversial. In response, the present work investigates a mixture of caprylyl glycol and phenethyl alcohol, which is shown to provide antimicrobial activity in various skin and hair care formulations. 
A new alternative to cosmetics preservation and the effect of the particle size of the emulsion droplets on preservation efficacy
A new alternative combination preservative containing caprylyl glycol, phenethyl alcohol and glyceryl caprylate is described and the effects of the particle size of the emulsion droplet on the anti‐microbial activity of the said blend in the formulation are investigated. Expand
Dualistic Properties of Cosmetic Formulations Based on Phenylpropanoids from Ajuga reptans
Our continued interest in the research and development of cosmetic active ingredients deriving from natural sources led us to investigate the potential of a purified extract of Ajuga reptans, a plantExpand
"Smart" polymer enhances the efficacy of topical antimicrobial agents.
In vitro and ex vivo antimicrobial efficacy studies show that FTP-AgSD films are significantly more effective for longer durations against Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa when compared to the cream formulations containing antimicrobials. Expand
Conformational preferences and antimicrobial activities of alkanediols
Abstract Diols with short aliphatic chains were known to exhibit antimicrobial activities, which were found to depend on the chain length and the position of the hydroxyl groups. We carried out theExpand
Evaluation of a Microbial Sensor as a Tool for Antimicrobial Activity Test of Cosmetic Preservatives.
The sensor system presented in this study could be useful in large-scale screening experiments and showed positive correlation to the concentrations of two commercially used preservatives, chlorphenesin and 2-phenoxyethanol, indicating the feasibility in practical use. Expand
Understanding the differential depression of tetrasodium glutamate diacetate on the separation of specularite and chlorite: Experimental and DFT study
Abstract In this paper, tetrasodium glutamate diacetate (TGD) was applied as a depressant for cationic direct flotation separation of specularite and chlorite. The depression performance of TGD wasExpand


Safety of a preservative system containing 1,2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol
To study the potential for delayed Type IV dermal sensitivity of a new preservative system containing 1,2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol, 200-subject repeat insult patch tests were performed with a 15% mixture in carbomer gel and a cosmetic formulation at an actual use concentration. Expand
New alternatives to paraben-based preservative blends
Adding diazolidinyl urea to a blend of organic acids (i.e., sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate) extends this sample blend's applicable pH range up to a pH level of 7, provides protection fromExpand
Can New Biodegradable Complexing Agents Replace Tetrasodium EDTA to Boost Preservatives
The continuing discussion of cosmetic preservatives has limited the number of arrested actives than can be practically used. As a result, a number of different methods and materials are being used toExpand
The preservation of ophthalmic solutions with antibacterial combinations
Results show that the latex lo00 g organelles of poppy latex contain catechol oxidase and also give evidence of both tyrosinase and laccase activities, and indicates compartmentalization within the organelle. Expand
1,2-Octanediol, a Novel Surfactant, for Treating Head Louse Infestation: Identification of Activity, Formulation, and Randomised, Controlled Trials
1,2-octanediol was found to eliminate head louse infestation and is believed to disrupt the insect's cuticular lipid, resulting in dehydration. Expand
EDTA: the chelating agent under environmental scrutiny
The chelating agent EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is a compound of massive use world wide with household and industrial applications, being one of the anthropogenic compounds with highestExpand
Aromatic alcohols and their effect on Gram-negative bacteria, cocci and mycobacteria.
It is reported that PEA was only slightly less inhibitory to Staphylococcus aureus than Escherichia coli, and that the MIC for Pseudomonas aeruginosa was 0.46% (4600 mg/L). Expand
Composition and functional properties of the essential oil of amazonian basil, Ocimum micranthum Willd., Labiatae in comparison with commercial essential oils.
Labiatae essential oil showed a dose-dependent antifungal activity against pathogenic and food spoiling yeasts and a remarkable antioxidant capacity comparable to that of Trolox and vitamin E, and higher than the other essential oils. Expand
Mechanism of action of phenethyl alcohol: breakdown of the cellular permeability barrier.
It is proposed that the primary effect of PEA is a limited breakdown of the cell membrane, and the inhibition of deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis and other cellular functions would be secondary consequences of the alteration in the membrane structure. Expand
In Vitro Inactivation of Chlamydia trachomatis by Fatty Acids and Monoglycerides
The rapid inactivation of large numbers of C. trachomatis organisms by monocaprin suggests that it may be useful as a microbicidal agent for the prevention of the sexual transmission ofC. Expand
