Home Care Preservation

Take a look under your kitchen sink and you will see a variety of Home Care cleaning products very likely including laundry detergents and conditioners, dish wash liquids, and surface cleaners. Usually these products are water-based, and as such are susceptible to microbiological contamination.

To ensure that these products continue to work as they should, and importantly remain safe for consumers to use, formulators will typically add a preservative to prevent the growth of unwanted and potentially-harmful bacteria and fungi.

That’s where we come in…
