Apart from the usual suspects of alternative preservation such as organic acids and glycols, some more exotic materials have emerged in the last few years. One of them is an extract of the Magnolia Officinalis tree bark, containing the powerful magnolol and honokiol as active ingredients, our Evicare® magnolia.
Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract
Features & Benefits
Evicare magnolia displays a high antimicrobial activity at low concentrations against a number of different micro-organism, be it gram-positive or gram-negative bacteria, yeasts or moulds.
In addition to these antimicrobial benefits, Evicare® magnolia also possesses an antioxidative property due to the phenolic structure of the two actives magnolol and honokiol.
Evicare® magnolia can be used as a general antimicrobial booster in your formulation at low concentrations – or you can apply it as a specialized tool in anti-acne, anti-caries or similar targeted applications. Due to the faint and pleasant odor, mild taste and light color, no unwanted olfactory characteristics will be imparted on the formulation.
