Leucidal Liquid From Active Micro Technologies is based on an antimicrobial peptideoriginally derived from the lactic acid bacteria, Leuconostoc kimchii. L. kimchii is one of 15 species of microorganisms that make up the mixed culture responsible for producing the Korean dietary staple known as kimchi, a type of fermented cabbage. Like many lactic acid bacteria, L. kimchii is capable of restricting the growth of other microorganisms by acidifying its environment, but as is common in nature, it is not content to limit itself to a single mechanism of defense. In addition to acidifying its environment, it also produces a novel antimicrobial peptide. Using modern fermentation and bioprocessing technology, AMT has commercialized this antimicrobial peptide to produce Leucidal Liquid.
As with all biological materials, some attention must be paid to the conditions under which Leucidal Liquid is used. Based on bench-scale evaluations, as well as actual product applications, Leucidal Liquid 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).
