Biguanide 20, also known as Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, is a broad spectrum, fast acting bactericide. A 20% aqueous solution of poly(hexamethylenebiguanide) hydrochloride, also known as PHMB, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide is an effective preservative for make-up removers, moisturizing toners, facial cleansers, wet wipes and also offers antibacterial and deodorant properties. Originally formulated for the contact lens industry, it is also typically used in baby wipes. It is gentle in-use, with low eye and skin irritancy and low oral toxicity. 

Biguanide 20 is an effective non-formaldehyde, non-paraben preservative with no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) which is heat and UV stable. It is effective over a broad pH range (4-10), but most effective at a pH of 6.0 or less. As it is cationic, it is compatible with cationic, amphoteric and non-ionic surfactants. It is incompatible with strongly anionic systems.

Biguanide 20 is incompatible with natural liquid soaps and beeswax/borax emulsions. It is more compatible with cationic emulsifiers like Lotioncrafter BTMS.

Biguanide 20 is heat stable to at least 80°C (176°F) and can be added pre or post emulsification. For complex formulations, consider combining with another preservative for a broader spectrum of activity or potassium sorbate for increased antifungal/mold protection.**

Recommended usage level: 0.2 - 1.5%.
Appearance: Clear to slightly pale yellow, slightly opalescent liquid.
pH: 5.0 - 5.5

Our Customers Say...
I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC

I've just received my third order from Lotioncrafter. Once again, my order was received within days. I could not be more pleased with the quality of their products and the ease of their ordering process. Let me tell, their L-Ascorbic Acid Ultrafine powder is just PHENOMENAL !!! Two other products I am so impressed with are Rosehip Seed Oil & Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil. Top notch quality!! This is my #1 to go place for my diy products.

Thank you

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
Demitra Lewis

Absolutely thrilled with my first order from lotioncrafter, that I'm placing a second order! I came across several products and a link for lotioncrafter and I couldn't help but try some of your wonderful products. I'm very pleased with everything in my order, from quality to packaging! Everything is in resealable containers and packages,.... and WOW!, they ship soooooo fast! I received my order quicker than an amazon prime order! You've gained a lifetime customer, thank you!
