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.

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you

I would like to rave about the coustomer service. Quick run down: I bought LGPlus from somehwhere else I won't say I called that supplier and tried to find out if what I made was safe because for some reason started using it pass the usage rate. (Don't ask why I don't know?? Lol) notice I didnt want to know anything other than was it safe. Anyhow they couldnt help me at all...bummer So I called LC I was direct to Jenny at this point I'm bummed and ready to toss my creations. Not only did Jenny help me save my product she gave me a few option as to how to handle the situation definitely golden nuggets to hold on to. I recommend LC not only for their quality inventory (yes I've ordered and received) but also the customer service is awesome. Thank you again for your awesomeness!!
