Kopcerin DO (ethylhexylglycerin and octenidine dihydrochloride +Propylene Glycol)

Do you know what frequently used topical formulations are? Most of you will say, it is cosmetics and skin creams but there is one more favorite ingredient to add in this list that is deodorants.

Deodorants are nothing but conqueror of body odor. Nonetheless, deodorants in market are usually prepared using sweat-blocker and pores clogging ingredient such as aluminum. It contains antimicrobial agents like triclosan, paraben, petrochemical ingredients, as well as synthetic fragrance.

These ingredients after dermal absorption may lead to cancer by interfering with hormonal receptors inside our body. Thus, it is essential to check deodorant components before buying any chemical formulation fighting against odor causing bacteria.

Kumar organic products limited is manufacturing Kopcerin DO that goes into deodorant and cosmetic preparations.

This combination is being used as active ingredient in deodorant preparations which is made using ethyl hexyl glycerin and octenidine dihydrochloride which will not be absorbed through skin.

It creates environment on skin by adjusting topical surface pH that inhibits multiplication of bacterias.

Ethylhexylglycerin and octenidine dihydrochloride blend is anionic surfactant inhibiting growth of odor causing bacteria.Staphylococcus epidermidis and Bacillus subtilis are the most common germs that causes foot odor where this blend is more effective against these odor causing bacteria's as compared to Tea tree oil. This deodorant ingredient is effective against the most common bacterias causing Athletes foot such as Trichophyton rubrum & Trichophyton menthagrophytes.

This multifunctional cosmetic preservative has mild emollient and humectants properties that increases viscosity of surfactant based formulations. It has skin moisturizing ingredient that makes it suitable to be used in cosmetic industry. After continuous antibiotics usage, micro organisms develop resistance to them.

In addition, use of an excessively high concentration of an antiseptic may cause tissue damage or slow the process of wound healing. Hence, antibiotics should be used at optimum concentration to have desired effect.

Octenidine is not absorbed through the dermal or mucous membrane through wounds. However, cation active compounds cause local irritation and are extremely poisonous when administered parenterally. Prolonged contact with propylene glycol (E490) is essentially non-irritating to the skin.

At 0.1 to 2.0 % concentrations this component is already being utilized as antimicrobial agent in European countries. Chlorhexidine has slow action and it is carcinogenic as well because of its impurity 4-chloroaniline. Octenidine preparations have cost benefit over chlorhexidine. While it might include phenoxyethanol but that is not listed in the Annex V of authorized preservatives of the European Cosmetic Regulation 1223/2009.
