Description

HexaCon 91 is a cosmetic preservative.

Use

Cosmetics must be preserved in many cases so that they do not spoil. This product can help achieve this.

  • Foaming cleansers such as shampoo, shower gel and the like: use 0.8-1.0 grams of preservative per 100 grams of shampoo. Mix HexaCon 91 with the surfactant and only then add the water.
  • Emulsions such as creams: use 0.6-1.0 grams of HexaCon 91 per 100 grams of cream. Mix preservative with the water phase. It does not necessarily dissolve well, so stir just before adding the water phase.
  • Gels, for example hair gel, and other products with gum-like thickeners: use 0.6-1.0 grams of preservative per 100 grams of gel. If you use a product such as glycerin or propylene glycol: mix the HexaCon 91 with it before adding the water.
  • Aqueous products, such as rose water: use 0.6-1.0 grams of preservative per 100 grams of finished product. Use as much until it no longer mixes with the product.
It is not a suitable product for products that do not contain water, for example most make-up products. The pH of the product may be between 3 to 10, the maximum temperature during preparation may not exceed 120 °C. The product is a suitable replacement for BioKons. The legal maximum concentration is 1.1%.
