Life Sciences, Chemical Process
- Highly effective, edible natural antioxidants for oils and fats
- Antioxidant and antibacterial effects for long shelf life
- For edible oils and fats, cosmetics and other oil-based products
Plant oils and animal fats are prone to oxidative degeneration affecting taste, performance, and storage capability of the respective products. In addition, water-containing formulations form an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Especially for food and cosmetic applications, highly effective natural antioxidants that are soluble in hydrophobic formulations are highly sought after.
The innovative technology describes the use of natural antioxidants and antibacterial agents for the conservation of foods, bio-based cosmetics, eco-friendly household or other products. Highly effective, harmless additives are used to obtain truly green, natural products with competitive product and storage properties. Cost-effective components allow the formulation of profitable eco-friendly final products with high customer acceptance.
The inventive antioxidants and antibacterial agents are applicable for a broad range of food, cosmetic and other products. Thus, commercial opportunities for the green preservatives are e.g.:
- food and cooking oils
- cosmetic and pharmacologic oils and fats
- oil-based lubricants and household products
Preservative capability tested for different oil-based products.
