Natural salicylic acid alternative

July 2012

Alban Muller International has launched a pure molecule extracted from wintergreen that provides a natural alternative to salicylic acid commonly used in a synthetic form in cosmetics.

 This innovation has led to two new ingredients. Firstly, Amipreserve is a completely natural, eco-responsible cosmetic preservative, and its effectiveness has been tested on bacteria, yeasts and moulds, providing a safe anti-microbial solution to protect cosmetic products. Amipreserve is colourless and odourless and is therefore an effective, natural alternative to synthetic preservatives (parabens, phenoxyethanol, etc.) or essential oils. Secondly, Amiperfect is a completely natural, eco-responsible active ingredient dedicated to achieving a perfect, radiant complexion. Its keratolytic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory action purifies the skin and promotes the elimination of dead cells, smoothes blemishes and wrinkles, and encourages the regeneration of the epidermis. Used in skin care products, Amiperfect refines the skin texture for a smoother, softer epidermis and a glowing, luminous complexion.
