A World In Change, Protected™

Preservation is a fundamental element of many Lonza business units, and Consumer Product Ingredients is no exception.  For many years, Lonza Consumer Product Ingredients 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 - from retailers, NGO and consumers - to which many preservatives, primarily those acknowledged as ‘traditional’, are subjected.  As such, it remains critical to select preservation options that recognize and meet…

  • Justifiable and acceptable cost
  • Prevalent applications
  • Consumer desires
  • Country regulations
  • Formulator preferences and requirements
  • Relevant efficacy spectrum
  • A solid science-based approach


In direct acknowledgement of this, Lonza Consumer Product Ingredients has devised a long-term strategy which complements and develops its existing positioning as a long-term, dependable and sustainable key supplier to the global Preservation markets.  The strategy is built upon three pillars…

  • Defend            Continuing robust defence of traditional and trusted core preservation chemistries
  • Develop          Market-focused optimised blend development and R&T, delivered through worldwide regional technical centres
  • Innovate         Commitment to innovation through multi-functionals, potentiation of existing actives, development of true new actives and efficacy testing automation   


Furthermore, we recognise that any modern-day offer in preservation cannot merely be a product or a chemistry but needs to encapsulate other interrelated and synergistic elements such as strong formulation proficiency, end-application know-how, regulatory support, advocacy, hygiene service elements and toxicology expertise.  This recognition is encapsulated by Lonza Consumer Product Ingredients' PreservationPlus™ concept, a model created to best align ourselves with your needs and demands.       


We look forward to working with you to provide solutions to your preservation challenges, now and into the future.
