Leucidal® Liquid is a natural preservative containing a naturally occurring peptide produced by the lactic acid bacteria, Leuconostoc kimchii. L. kimchii, not only acidifies its environment but also produces a novel antimicrobial peptide and it is this peptide, that is used to create Leucidal® Liquid.

A natural alternative to synthetic preservatives, Leucidal®l Liquid may be useful as a topical antimicrobial when addressing problem skin or scalp conditions.

Peptides, like those found in Leucidal® Liquid, have been found to provide skin moisturizing properties, making them an important ingredient in wrinkle fighting creams, serums, and under eye products. When applied topically to the skin, those peptides can also signal the body to form new collagen and repair damaged cells, giving the appearance of more youthful, supple skin.

Studies have also shown that the addition of 1% Leucidal® Liquid to a cream base formulation provided a 10% increase in moisturization. As a result, adding Leucidal® Liquid to your product allows you to not only capitalize on Leucidal® Liquid’s natural antimicrobial properties but also its ability to provide potent moisturizing benefits to your cosmetic formulation!
