EPSAN C is a new natural and broad spectrum preservative system derived from p-Anisic acid and Polylysine. It is made of natural ingredients and has an antimicrobial effect against yeast, fungi, gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, making it suitable for versatile applications in the cosmetic and nutraceutical industry.

EPSAN C is effective at a pH range between 4,5-7,5 and allows the claim “preservative-free”, as its components are not classified as preservatives. It is easy to use, water soluble, heat stable and almost odorless. It does not affect the viscosity of the formulation.
