Spectrastat™ is Inolex’s complete system for paraben-free and phenoxyethanol-free cosmetic and personal care products. Spectrastat™ contains no biocides or typical preservatives. Instead, it uses multifunctional agents that have excellent efficacy as biostatic and fungistatic agents. It can be used as an alternative to traditional preservative blends that are seen as undesirable by the consumer.
A special benefit of Spectrastat™ is that it performs superbly at neutral pH, a state where many other fungistatic materials are ineffective. Spectrastat is also approved by the TGA for topical applications.
Spectrastat products consist of a blend of caprylhydroxamic acid and a diol. The range is available in multiple versions, including Inolex’s newest blend, Spectrastat PHL, ideal for sensitive facial applications, where low irritation is required.
Spectrastat™ series includes: Optimised systems, cost-effective budgeted system, liquid-series for cold process system and ultra-gentle low irritation system
Applications: emulsions, anhydrous and surfactant systems. These include creams, lotions, shower gels, and make-up.
