Protecting Your Products and Your Reputation™

Preservation is a fundamental element of many Lonza business units, and Consumer Care is no exception.  For many years, Lonza Consumer Care has remained proud to offer a comprehensive range of preservation systems to the global Home Care and Personal Care markets, a wide-ranging portfolio of single active and blended preservatives that capably offers:

  • Traditional, non-traditional and novel technologies
  • Wide global acceptance and regulatory compliance
  • Broad spectrum efficacy
  • Robust data packages
  • Extensive substrate compatibility
  • Innovative and market-focused R&D
  • Industry-leading Regulatory and Toxicology expertise

Prominent existing product lines include our well-accepted Proxel® range of BIT-based systems, the cost-efficacious Dantogard® and Glydant® series of preservatives built around DMDMH, our reliable antifungal Glycacil ® and Omacide® ranges based on IPBC, trusted Vantocil® and Cosmocil® offers centered on PHMB, and our expanding range of ‘next generation’ non-traditionals and protection systems under the Geogard®, Mikrokill® and Biovert® brands.


However, this is only part of today’s picture.  We all appreciate the dynamic and changing nature of the global preservation markets, and the seemingly endless scrutiny and pressure to which many preservatives, primarily those acknowledged as ‘traditional’, are subjected.  In a direct response to this market dynamism, Lonza Consumer Care’s Preservation business has been rethought and rebuilt around three fundamental and interrelated aspects:

  • Robust defense of traditional, well-understood and dependable preservatives
  • Innovative appreciation of - and reaction to - changing market regulations, trends and drivers
  • Intuitive anticipation of what tomorrow’s preservation systems may be, and how they can be effectively integrated into a cost- and performance-aware environment
