Arborcide® OC

There has an ongoing pursuit of harnessing the natural mechanisms utilized by both plants and microorganisms to give themselves a competitive advantage over other organisms and for protecting themselves from their environment. To restrict competition from other microorganisms typically found in its environment. Leuconostoc kimchii isone of 15 species of microorganisms typically associated with the production of the Korean dietary staple known as kimchi, a type of fermented cabbage. The process of fermentation has been used for centuries to preserve food. AMT has employed this principle in the development of FSS Arborcide® OC. This ferment filtrate contains intact, non-viable microorganisms and has shown a wide range of utility as a skin conditioner and antimicrobial agent for cosmetic and personal care product formulations.


Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) were determined using a standard growth media dilution method. A variety of bacterial and fungal cultures were tested to evaluate the ability of
FSS Arborcide® OC to protect against microbial contamination. The results indicate that FSS Arborcide® OC can provide effective protection for cosmetic systems.

As with all biological materials some attention must paid to the conditions under which FSS Arborcide® OC is used. Applications to date have shown that the material is stable up to a temperature of 60°C. Additionally, our testing has shown that FSS Arborcide®OC remains active between a pH of 3 and 8.

For many cosmetic formulations
FSS Arborcide®OC
can function as a natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. Its ability to serve as both a skin conditioner and an antimicrobial agent make it a logical choice for potential applications when addressing problem skin and scalp conditions.

Please note: FSS Arborcide®OC is not Certified Organic by the USDA National Organic Program. However, it is allowed for use in Certified Organic products according to section 205.605 of the Code of Federal Regulations. FSS Arborcide®OC must be reviewed and approved for use by each customer’s individual certifying agency if it is to be used in an organic finished formula. Each agency interprets the Code of Federal Regulations in their own way. Because of this, we recommend consulting with the organic certifying agent of choice prior to submitting the finished formula for certification.
