Leucidal® SF Max is Derived from Lactobacillus acidophilus, a probiotic bacterium traditionally used to ferment milk into yogurt. Created by the fermentation of Lactobacillus in a defined growth medium, this specific manufacturing process yields a unique peptide with broad spectrum, antimicrobial and conditioning properties.
It is important to note that this material is not a preservative – but multifunctional active with antimicrobial properties. As such it cannot be used as 1:1 replacements of more traditional preservative systems. Natural antimicrobials can be used to compliment and balance more traditional preservatives.
SF: Salicylate Free
Demonstrated potential to promote a balanced skin microbiome when compared to more traditional antimicrobials.
Biocidal Activity: Strong against bacteria, partial against yeasts and moulds
MAX: Optimised for better antimicrobial performance than Leucidal® SF
Best Combined with AMTicide® Coconut for boosted preservative effect.
