Efficacy

Microbiological Challenge Studies
Studies were run using various concentrations of Glydant® 2000, a lower formaldehyde variant in the Glydant range, in a shampoo formulation to see efficacy on a mixed inoculum of bacteria and mixed fungi. All samples were inoculated at the beginning of the study, sampled at 24 hours, 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days.
