Lexgard® GH70 Natural (Glyceryl Heptanoate) is the first non-palm, 100% natural, and ultra-mild preservation component on the market. The patent-pending, multifunctional ingredient is an entirely plant-based bacteriostatic medium chain terminal diol. It provides antimicrobial control in formulations by functioning as a building block for a customized
Hurdle Technology system.
A glyceryl ester, Lexgard® GH70 Natural is significantly milder to skin than traditional preservation components making it well suited to sensitive skin, facial care, and baby care applications. Its cold processable and liquid format provides ease-of-manufacturing and its compatibility with solubilizers makes it ideal for clear formulations.
