Great News about Women's International Pharmacy's
Non-Alcohol Gel Base
Women's International Pharmacy has made an adjustment to the formulation of our non-alcohol gel that will allow for:
- more convenient storage (refrigeration is no longer required as it can now be stored at room temperature)
- longer shelf life (the shelf life has been extended from 3 months to 6 months of use).
The adjustment is the addition of a preservative, phenylcarbinol 2%. Phenylcarbinol is a natural component in a number of plants, fruits, green and black teas and essential oils. It is approved for use as a preservative and is found in a variety of products including: injectables, moisturizers, baby products, vaginal creams, anti-aging products, sunscreens and eye make-up removers.
Phenylcarbinol is known by many names: benzyl alcohol, phenyl methanol, alpha-hydroxytoluene, just to name a few. Even though phenylcarbinol has an alcohol-like name/structure, it is not the same kind of alcohol that causes stinging or burning when applied to sensitive skin. This preservative is suitable for vaginal preparations.
It has a mild aromatic fruity scent which disappears shortly after application. It does not change the potency, consistency or pH of the non- alcohol gel.
