Spectrastat OL is a complete system for preservative-free cosmetic and personal care products. It is especially useful in cold-process applications, such as toiletries and wet wipes. It is completely liquid, homogeneous, and pumpable even at low temperatures.
Spectrastat OL contains no biocides or typical preservatives. Instead it uses multifunctional agents that have excellent efficacy as biostatic and fungistatic agents. It is ideal for formulations where a paraben-free or preservative-free claim is needed. It can be used as an alternative to traditional preservative blends that are seen as undesirable by the consumer. It performs superbly at neutral pH, a state where many other fungistatic materials are ineffective.
