Preservatives & Active Ingredients: The Workhorses Within

Alternative Preservative Technology to the Rescue!

Traditional preservative technologies have come under significant pressure in recent years, both from increasing regulatory constraints and, perhaps most challenging, from shifting consumer perceptions that often have little or no scientific basis. The situation is even more complicated for global manufacturers as regulations and consumer tastes can vary considerably across borders. Preservative suppliers are responding in very creative ways, developing numerous alternative technologies that provide the necessary protections while still meeting the complex regulatory and consumer requirements. We will discuss some of the creative ways that preservative suppliers are bringing alternative preservative technologies to the rescue!
