About Lexgard® Natural MB

Lexgard Natural represents a holistic, all-natural multi-functional ingredient system tailored for preservative-free and self-preserving cosmetics. Derived entirely from plants, it carries no petrochemical content, and boasts Ecocertification, aligning with the highest standards of natural cosmetics. Its ecological credentials far surpass those of "nature identical" petrochemical counterparts. Lexgard Natural is primarily composed of exceptionally pure monoesters of caprylic acid (C8 acid) and undecylenic acid (C11 acid). The former is renowned for its biostatic activity against both bacteria and yeast, while the latter is recognized for its efficacy against fungi. Numerous formulations incorporating Lexgard Natural have successfully met the challenge tests mandated for cosmetics.

Lexgard® Natural MB is an all-natural multifunctional ingredient system for preservation effects. It is composed of high purity C8 monoesters and undecylenic acid to protect formulations from microbial growth.
