Preserving Preservatives

Year-on-year, the dynamic and changing nature of the global preservation market is increasingly apparent. The continued need for global regulatory compliance of preservatives coupled with ever-increasing regulatory requirements routinely necessitates the generation of new data and, with it, the potential for new classifications and restrictions. Across the homecare and personal care markets – within which wet wipes is a significant contributor – many preservatives, primarily those acknowledged as 'traditional', are subjected to seemingly endless scrutiny and pressure. As a result, the preservative supplier industry needs to develop and implement a strategy that encompasses both defense and advocacy opposite existing chemistries as well as innovation in new and alternative solutions. Integral to this must be close engagement with regulatory bodies and decision-makers supported by internal regulatory expertise.
