schuelke_new_multifunctionalschülke launches sensiva® SC 50, a real multifunctional additive with synergy, boosting, moisturizing and odor reducing efficacy. The new active ingredient combines antimicrobial boosting with additional functions.

sensiva® SC 50 Used as Deodorant Active

In-vitro tests show a selective activity on odor causing Gram-positive bacteria. sensiva® SC 50 can be used as a deodorant active. It has minimal effect on the microbiome as compared to triclosan, which indiscriminately eliminated all microorganisms.

Studies combining sensiva® SC 50 with alcohols and glycols prove a true synergy, boosting preservative and antimicrobial efficacy in finished formulations. As a medium-spreading emollient, ethylhexylglycerin is able to improve the skin-feel of personal care formulations.

sensiva® SC 50 in combination with glycerin can produce a formulation that feels less tacky and greasy, with improved penetration and lower soaping.

The recent pandemic has refocused the world’s attention on antimicrobials. With increasing use of hand sanitizers, the prevalence of dry, irritated hands is a real issue. sensiva® SC 50 not only boosts the antimicrobial efficacy, also helps to improve the moisturization of the skin after use.
