Explore Symrise’s creative technologies for product protection

Preservatives are an integral part of cosmetic formulations and to ensure consumer safety. They help prevent microbial contamination, not only to protect the freshness of your product, but also to keep consumers safe from harmful microorganisms.

Domitila Barros, Symrise Cosmetic Ingredients brand ambassador, stands for the values and the vision of the division

In a world of changing consumer expectations, market trends, individual company policies, and updated regulations, formulators need to be creative and to use innovative antimicrobial ingredients and combinations to provide safe and effective products. Symrise offers a full range of unique molecules and synergistic combinations within the SymOcide portfolio to preserve cosmetic products.

Prioritising safety and efficacy through education

With the emerging popularity of the microbiome, microorganisms have gained a favourable reputation in modern culture. Consumers now understand that not all organisms are pathogens and some even support our health. However, formulators understand the detrimental effects microorganisms can have on cosmetics and personal care products.

At Symrise, we understand the balance that exists between consumer perception and the formulator’s reality. We aim to educate our customers on the safest, most efficacious options to protect their products.

Find the right ingredients online

For the last 20 years, Symrise has been an innovative player in the field of modern product protection. Its ingredients that protect formulations from contamination by microorganisms are grouped under the unique name of ‘Product Protection’.

Our objective is to offer customers a full toolbox, which encompasses the different categories of personal care products and satisfies the specific demands of regional markets. Hogo, Symrise’s online platform for Product Protection, guides you to find the solution to protect your formulas.

On Hogo, users can explore clever solutions that are proven to keep cosmetic products safe and stable. Symrise advises that multi-functionals are the key in this regard. With primary

benefits such as soothing, moisturising, antioxidant or solubilising, these molecules also enhance the product protection properties of formulas.
