LactoCoconut Extract, Water Soluble Preservative

Fermenting pure Coconut Oil with Lactobacillus was found to increase bioavailability of natural phytocompounds within Coconut Oil, yielding a naturally mild, antifungal preservative. Rich in Lauric Acid, LactoCoconut Extract is ideally suited for use in conjunction with Lactobacillus Ferment to help provide greater protection against yeast and mold.

As the media continues to focus its attention on the risks of parabens, formaldehyde releasers, and other synthesized preservatives, product formulators and manufacturers are facing the growing challenge of procuring natural alternatives that provide suitable broad spectrum protection.

Praan Naturals is pleased to offer manufacturers and formulators a range of premium quality natural preservatives, including LactoCoconut Extract and Lactobacillus Ferment. Both products are especially effective when paired together.

All formulations should be challenge tested by a qualified laboratory to ensure that each batch is properly preserved. The method of production, the specific components of the formulation, the environment in which the batch is formulated and the method of packaging all play a crucial role in the resulting shelf life of a batch. Therefore, we cannot guarantee your results when incorporating natural preservatives into your formulations. Only lab challenge testing can determine how and if a preservative is achieving the desired results.
