INCI: Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate
Origin: Fermented from lactic acid bacteria Leuconostoc Kimichii. Suitable for natural and organic cosmetics.
Leucidal is almost odourless and is able to preserve a product by acidifying its environment and through the production of a peptide that it produces as a defence mechanism.
Microbial Action: Broad Spectrum protection but may require a secondary preservative in challenging products such as those with clays, exfoliant particles or herbal extracts. We recommend Preservative Efficacy Testing before commercialising your product.
Use Levels: 2-4%
Addition Instructions: This has poor heat stability so we recommend adding when the product has cooled to 50C or less. Effective in a pH range of 3-8.
