Germall Plus is a white, fine, free-flowing hygroscopic powder. Not recommended for products intended to be aerosolized.

Germall Plus Powder is effective over a broad pH range from 3-8. It is soluble in cationic, anionic and nonionic water-soluble formulations, as well as in the emulsified portion of water-in-oil or oil-in-water emulsions.

Germall Plus Powder has been found effective at use levels between 0.05% – 0.2%.

Germall Plus Powder is well-suited for creams, emulsions, sun care, mascara, rouge and powders, shampoos, conditioners

Germall Plus Powder is paraben free, isothiazolinone free formulation.

Germall Plus Powder is heat sensitive and should be added to the water phase or to the emulsified portion of the formulation at a temperature of 122°F (50°C) or below, during the cool down stage. Adding Germall Plus above 122°F (50°C) could result in compromising the preservative system in your product. However, every cosmetic formulation should have a preservative system custom made to match its needs and should be tested to ensure proper preservation.
