Leucidal Liquid, AMTicide Coconut and White Willow Bark Powder
In December of 2019 and early into 2020, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic exploded onto the global scene from China and quickly affected many industries worldwide.
The cosmetics supply and beauty industry in Australia and New Zealand, of which Ceechem is an integral part, was by no means spared. It quickly adapted to prioritise the sourcing and production of raw materials and ingredients that could be incorporated into personal care products to help in curbing the spread of this virus.
Our overall response included the prioritisation of products, which can help end consumers like individuals, businesses, and institutions to respond effectively to this unprecedented pandemic.
How Ceechem Raw Materials Help in the Fight Against Covid-19
Ceechem has a name as a specialty raw materials supplier to the beauty, cosmetics, and personal care market in Australia and New Zealand.
Our raw materials from global supply chain partners like Active Concepts LLC who formulate organic, natural, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free skin and hair care ingredients such as Enzymes, Bio ferments, and Botanical Extracts and functional actives .
In these unprecedented times, these raw materials and proprietary ingredients are even more relevant; they enhance sanitising-style systems that are entirely natural in much-needed sanitizers, soaps, hand wash gels, and other cleaning regimes.
These natural products harness the power of plant-based mechanisms to provide antifungal and antimicrobial properties, which assist in sanitizing systems and provide additional hydration and protection for the skin.
These raw materials include:
Leuconostoc kimchii, also known as the bacterium that makes kimchi, is a vital antimicrobial in a variety of skincare products. The fermentation of Leuconostoc yields a unique peptide with broad-spectrum antimicrobial and conditioning properties.
In various blends, this proprietary ingredient offers even more protection and moisturisation. Our 75/25 combination of Leucidal Liquid with AMTicide Coconut yields a broad-spectrum antimicrobial which has preventative function against the growth of bacteria, moulds, and yeasts.
This blend also offers conditioning and moisturising properties that benefit skin and scalp applications in sanitizers, shampoos, and soaps.
AMTicide Coconut, coupled with our broad-spectrum antimicrobial Leucidal Liquid, or any other preservatives offers protection against yeasts and moulds. Cocos nucifera (coconut fruit) is fermented with Lactobacillus bacterium to deliver an antifungal, non-irritating, and water-soluble micro-ingredient that can be effective in a myriad of personal care products. This ingredient can offer a natural functional alternative to ingredients like Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, and Sorbic Acid.
White Willow Bark Powder
Salicylic acid, present in our all-natural White Willow Bark Powder Extract, increases the amount of moisture in the skin by dissolving the substance that causes skin cells to stick together.
It is the ideal raw ingredient to combat skin inflammation as it reduces the expression of COX-2, the factor which leads to tissue inflammation.
Phytofuse Elderberry OS (Oil-soluble)
Elderberries are naturally rich in the Phyto-compounds flavonoids and undecylenic acid, which provide eﬀective antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits.
This oil-soluble extract is entirely natural and is useful in enhancing both antimicrobial and conditioning properties in oil-based cosmetic formulations, which may succumb to microbial contamination once opened.
This multifunctional active ingredient, smooths the skin and provides all important benefits like protection and moisturisation.
Recent in vivo studies have shown Phytofuse Renew can prevent microbial transfer aiding to the skin’s barrier function whilst providing moisturizing and conditioning making it an ideal ingredient to compliment sanitisation and cleaning systems.
