In-can preservatives:

Overcoming new regulatory challenges while meeting evolving consumer demands

Assessing the need for innovation


In-can preservatives – namely biocides – are commonly used across a range of industries to protect products from spoilage. Isothiazolinones – an important biocide family - are regularly used in in-can applications.

In addition, there has recently been a renewed interest in improving household formulations, so they are more eco-friendly.
