With a broad spectrum of activity, AMINAT® range of products are multifunctional innovative formulations that can be used as preservatives in personal care products (creams, lotions, body milks, hair conditioners, among others) and as an active ingredient in soaps, antidandruff shampoos, deodorants and oral care products.

AMINAT®-G is based on a solution of Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate HCI (LAE® or Lauric arginate) in Glycerin.

LAE® is based on natural raw materials such as lauric acid, L-arginine and ethanol.

LAE® combines a high antimicrobial efficacy with low toxicity, non-sensitizing and non skin irritating features. It can provide smoothness to skin and hair because of its cationic nature.
