Discover ISCA’s innovative multifunctional additive: Aevum Vita 406

Aevum Vita 406 is a mild, naturally derived surfactant for use in cosmetic products with excellent anti-microbial and foaming properties.

It exhibits anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, allowing formulators to reduce or even eliminate the preservative content from their formulations. Furthermore, Aevum Vita 406 shows excellent anti-dandruff and good anti-acne activities.  As a PEG-free anionic surfactant with excellent foaming properties, it is ideally suited for use in baby shampoos, skin friendly hand washes and natural cosmetic formulations.

Aevum Vita 406 as anti-dandruff active ingredient

Aevum Vita 406 shows very good anti-fungal activity against Malassezia Furfur, which has been shown to cause dandruff on the scalp. Many common anti-dandruff actives are synthetic and insoluble in water, which makes formulating natural and clear formulations very difficult. With Aevum Vita 406, these problems are a thing of the past – allowing the formulator to create natural and clear anti-dandruff formulations without any toxicity issues.
