ABSTRACT

In this study, we investigate the efficiency of Magnolia officinalis bark extract and heptyl undecylenate (A-Silkne) in antimicrobial activity and preservative effects. The results of this study demonstrate that A-Silkne has a good preservative effect as a natural-derived antimicrobial agent, and is particularly synergic with various preservatives. In addition, A-Silkne was found to have potential efficacy for anti-acne and similar skin feel to silicone oils. With this study, it is concluded that A-Silkne, as a multifunctional ingredient, can be an excellent alternative, reducing the use of higher doses of chemical/synthetic preservatives that are often associated with sensitivity and allergic reactions

Preservation of personal care products containing water and organic/inorganic ingredients is necessary to prevent spoilage that subsequently can cause severe health risks for consumers. One of the major concerns in personal care products is product spoilage causing microbial contamination.
