Elixi-KON CHP, Chlorphenesin, is a broad spectrum preservative ingredient, active against bacteria, fungi and yeasts.
It is used as a polyvalent preservative in many different cosmetic products.
Elixi-KON CHP can be used to overcome formulation issues such as viscosity and pH changes, emulsion breakdowns, visible microorganism growth, color changes and unpleasant odor formations.
Elixi-KON CHP, Chlorphenesin, is glycerol in which the hydrogen of one of the primary hydroxy groups is substituted by a 4-chlorophenyl group. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties and is used for treatment of cutaneous infections. 

Elixi-KON CHP, Chlorphenesin, is soluble in hot water at 65 – 70 °C by stirring, almost insoluble in oils and fats.
To enhance solubility, a premix is suggested prior to addition (15 – 20 % concentration) in glycols such as Elixi-CARE PDO (1,3-propanediol).
Elixi-KON CHP, Chlorphenesin, shows a very good stability in formulations within the pH range of 3.5 – 6.5. Examples of good results even at higher pH values (such as pH 9) can be found in the literature.
