Clean Preservatives

TeraStat™ N

TeraStat N is the first natural cosmetic preservation system to use biostatic agent CGE. CGE is an important biolipid (alkyl glyceryl ether). Originally found in human breast milk and marine animals, CGE has been recreated using entirely vegan components, glycerin and vegetable oil. Unlike current natural preservatives such as Glyceryl Caprylate (GMCY), CGE biolipid won’t hydrolyze, degrade and become deactivated. CGE is the most stable and effective natural preservative yet.

TeraStat N is a comprehensive solution to passing challenge tests and preserving clean beauty.
