General information

Iscaguard FPX2 is compatible with most personal care ingredients.

The presence of phenoxyethanol reduces, or overcomes the inactivation of parabens by some non- ionic emulsifiers when parabens are used alone.

In formulations with a high protein content, it may be necessary to use a higher concentration of Iscaguard FPX2.

Not to be used in leave-on products designed for application on the nappy area of children under three years of age.
