Purple Citrus’ Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) is a citrus seed-based anti-microbial liquid which may be used as a preservative in a wide range of skin care products including; anti-bacterial creams, salves, rinses and soaps.

GSE (also known as citrus seed extract) combines the extracts of citrus seeds, pulp and white membranes with vegetable glycerin, which makes it non-irritating to the skin and mucous membranes when used in your formulations.

GSE has become increasingly accepted in manufacturing circles as a natural preservative but please note, Grapefruit Seed Extract is not in itself a full-spectrum preservative. GSE contains important vitamins and minerals, and, some studies have shown that it's antimicrobial activities were at a higher level than that of existing synthetic preservatives. 

Our Grapefruit Seed Extract formula is professional strength (60% GSE and 40% vegetable glycerin USP,) unlike typical 33% GSA formulas found elsewhere.

INCI: Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract

Usage Information:

  • Use GSE at a rate of.2% to 1%

***Please Note: Although GSE is said to be anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-bacterial, adding it to your products at 2% does not mean that you can market or label the product as an "anti-bacterial" product.

**Caution*** This product is for external use only and should never be ingested. Although it is non-irritating when used in your products, GSE in its undiluted form, may irritate skin. Gloves are recommended when handling.
