Properties: Intended to be coupled with one of our broad-spectrum antimicrobials, such as Leucidal Liquid, or perhaps any preservative package that is lacking in protection, against yeast and mold. AMTicide® Coconut is developed by fermenting Cocos nucifera (Coconut) fruit with Lactobacillus to deliver a non-irritating and effective multifunctional product. This product can provide moisturizing and conditioning benefits in hair and skin care applications. Additionally, it is effective at preventing the growth of fungus, specifically yeast and mold, thus providing added protection to any formulation.


Fueled by the ever-changing regulations and the increasing safety concerns, among consumers, we must steer away from synthetics and focus on natural solutions. AMTicide® Coconut is developed by fermenting Cocos nucifera (Coconut) fruit with Lactobacillus to deliver a non-irritating, effective and multifunctional product. This highly marketable product can provide moisturizing and conditioning benefits in hair and skin care applications. In addition, it is effective at preventing the growth of fungus, specifically yeast and mold, thus providing the perfect addition to any formulation.


As we know, the use of parabens and formaldehyde donor materials are coming to a screeching halt, as controversy continues to surround them. When companies began phasing out parabens and formaldehyde donor materials, they replaced them with ingredients that dissociate into formaldehyde when put in an aqueous solution, such as DMDM Hydantoin. This option is not only cost effective but also protected formulas against bacteria, yeast and mold, which made the life of formulators seemingly effortless. However, as consumers continue to focus on natural solutions, these products are no longer an acceptable option.


This leads the quest for natural antimicrobial products that can suit the needs of formulators and ultimately consumers. The challenge is not only finding one product that will protect against a wide range of microorganisms but also finding another product to supplement it, for protection that will not fail. How do we achieve the protection we need in a formulation without adding any synthetic ingredients.


Active Micro Technologies has prided itself in developing and supplying effective, natural products that provide skin and hair conditioning benefits, along with providing natural antimicrobial activity. As our original Leucidal Liquid product line continues to flourish, we still had the need for an antifungal product to round out our portfolio. This need left us with a long road of trial and error, in efforts to develop a marketable, yet effective antifungal booster. AMTicide® Coconut was developed to be used in conjunction with one of our broad-spectrum antimicrobials, however it can be used alongside any preservative package for extra protection against yeast and mold.


AMTicide® Coconut was developed to be coupled with one of our broad-spectrum antimicrobials, such as Leucidal® Liquid, or perhaps any preservative package that is lacking protection, against yeast and mold. This added boost of antifungal activity is the natural additive that will protect your product and consumers. Say goodbye to using potassium sorbate or sodium benzoate for added protection. Replace them with an eco-friendly, marketable and consumer acceptable antifungal product for the protection, and brand differentiation your product craves.



Usage Recommendations:

As with all biological materials, some attention must paid to the conditions under which AMTicide® Coconutis used. Based on bench-scale evaluations, as well as actual product applications, AMTicide® Coconut has been found to be effective over a wide range of typical cosmetic and personal care product manufacturing conditions. The product has been found to be heat stable up to 70°C and active under both acidic (pH 3) and basic conditions (pH 8).
