This group of actives is well known for many functions; among others their pleasant smell. Evicide® PBS has a faint, delicate rose-like aroma and significant preservative effect. Potassium Sorbate is another well known powerful preservative and a strong fungicide. In combination these three preservatives create a strong preservative effect in a broad pH spectrum.
