Aevum Vita 300
Natural Blend
INCI: aqua, lactic acid, phenylpropanol, citric acid, tartaric acid, gluconic acid

Aevum Vita 300 is an aqueous blend of naturally occurring fruit acids, which offers multiple benefits to the cosmetic formulator. It provides humectancy and skin conditioning properties, as well as enhanced stabilisation due to its chelating and buffering effects.

The presence of naturally sourced phenylpropanol imparts a delicate floral scent to end products, and its combination with tartaric acid helps to mask the odour of less pleasant smelling ingredients.

Additionally, Aevum Vita 300 has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, allowing the creation of self-preserving formulations.

General information

Aevum Vita 300 is suitable for use in wide range of rinse-off and leave-on formulations, and is compatible with most personal care ingredients.

The antimicrobial efficacy of Aevum Vita 300 increases as its pH decreases. It is, therefore, suitable for use in formulations with acidic pH values, but loses its efficacy as the pH approaches neutrality.


Aevum Vita 300 is an aqueous blend of naturally occurring fruit acids which can be used in a variety of formulations.
