dermosoft® 250 eco (INCI: Phenylpropanol), from Evonik Dr. Straetmans, is a naturally-derived, fragrance ingredient with antimicrobial activity that is found within many plants. It is a fragrance component with good preservative boosting capacities especially against fungi. Even at low concentrations, it acts independent of the pH-value and is a valuable partner for a broad variety of antimicrobials. As a multi-functional aromatic alcohol, dermosoft® 250 eco shows a synergistic antimicrobial effect with wetting agents.
Cinnamomum cassia as an ingredient within the Personal Care and Cosmetics sector is becoming ever more popular. Between 2015 and 2019, cosmetics product launches containing this ingredient increased by 123% (Europe, MENA and Asia Pacific regions).
dermosoft® 250 eco is isolated from Cassia essential oil, which is obtained by water steam distillation from the leaves and branches of the Chinese cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum cassia).
