Manufacturers add preservatives to formulations to control bacterial and fungal growth, extending the shelf life of these products. A number of synthetic preservatives have fallen from favor with regulators and consumers, due to issues like sensitization, and other health related concerns. The result has been a growing demand for proactive, innovative and alternative solutions to synthetic preservatives.
Active Micro Technologies (AMT) has focused its efforts on the power of natural compounds, combining cosmetic functionality with antimicrobial activity to develop a range of multi-functional ingredients that can reduce or eliminate the need for conventional preservatives. AMT strives to continuously improve and add to its eco-friendly, nature-based product line while also welcoming the opportunity to custom develop alternative products for preservation and natural antimicrobial solutions.
