AMTicide® Coconut   New Lower Odor!
CAS Number:
  68333-16-4 & 8001-31-8 

AMTicide® Coconut is a new patent-pending product from Active Micro Technologies developed by fermenting Cocos nucifera (Coconut) fruit with Lactobacillus to deliver a non-irritating, effective and multifunctional product which can provide moisturizing and conditioning benefits in hair and skin care applications.  In addition, it is effective at preventing the growth of fungus, specifically yeast and mold, thus providing additional protection for formulations using natural preservatives systems.

AMTicide® Coconut was developed to be used in conjunction with Active Micro Technology's broad-spectrum antimicrobials like Leucidal® Liquid and Leucidal® Liquid SF, but it can be used alongside any preservative system for extra protection against yeast and mold. They began investigating the antimicrobial effects of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which have been studied for years.  MCTs, including lauric acid, have natural antifungal activity and work by disrupting the cellular structures of fungus, thus essentially destroying them before they can wreak havoc.  This led to an exotic oil that is rich in MCTs - the well-known coconut oil.  Lauric acid comprises more than 50% of the total fatty acid content of this oil. 

AMTicide® Coconut was developed using the lipid fractions of coconut pericarp and Advanced Micro Technologies' specialty technique of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) fermentation which increases the bioavailability of natural phytocompounds. The resulting fermentation was found to have natural antifungal properties in addition to its moisturizing and conditioning benefits. 

The choice of preservatives for personal care formulations should be carefully considered. This is especially true when using natural antimicrobials and or other “mild” antimicrobials.  We recommend that every formula undergo stability and microbial testing to ensure adequate preservation.

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!
