Spectrastat OEL is a complete system for preservative-free cosmetic and personal care products. It contains no biocides or typical preservatives. Instead it uses multi-functional agents that have excellent efficacy as biostatic and fungistatic agents. It is ideal for formulations where a paraben-free or preservative-free claim is needed. It can be used as an alternative to traditional preservative blends that are seen as undesirable by the consumer. It performs superbly at neutral pH, a state where many other fungistatic materials are ineffective. Spectrastat OEL is compatible with most cosmetic ingredients
