Seeking: Anti-bacterial actives

Bacteria. Image (c) Microsoft Inc.

We are interested in anti-bacterial technologies or formulation approaches for Liquid Detergent applications. Your proposed technology could include registered actives (Anti-Bacterial-AB), or non-registered actives that could be co-formulated with an AB-registered active to further boost anti-bacterial efficacy. We are not interested in solvent-based technologies/actives at this time.

We would like to discover non-solvent-based anti-bacterial actives or formulation options that boost anti-bacterial efficacy. Actives and/or approaches:

  • Compatible with an aqueous (>50% water) alkaline (pH 8-10) liquid detergent matrix containing significant levels of anionic and semi-polar surfactants (25-35%).
  • Allowable to use across all the developed regions of the globe (Western Europe, North America, Japan) with minimal formula changes, i.e. propose technologies that are listed as an active (not necessary as an Anti-Bacterial active) in the individual regions (WE, NA, Japan).
  • Easily incorporated in to the product without changes to existing manufacturing processes.
  • Actives that are commercially available or that could be commercialized with minimal effort within one year.
  • Safe to use in consumer products and would not increase consumer safety risks.
  • Allowable to use without additional safety labeling at the level being formulated.
  • Meet EN1276 norm (log 5 reduction on 2 gram positive and 2 gram negative bacteria in a 5-minute suspension test) within WE formulations.

We are not looking for: Solvent based technologies — Solvents will impact the formula characteristics, especially viscosity, thus limit the applicability of this formulation approach; Technologies that are not commercially available, or that cannot become commercialized within the next year.
