Leucidal® Liquid Radish Root Anti-Microbial

Radish Root is the best all-natural alternative to synthetic preservatives.
Now available in three sizes: .5, 4, or larger 16-ounce!

If you use organic products or make your own skincare recipes at home, you probably have a refrigerator overflowing with skincare products. Unfortunately, fresh products without a preservative only last a day or two.

If you don't want to go to the fridge every time you want to use your moisturizer or revitalize your complexion, try our Leucidal® Liquid radish root ferment.

This natural antimicrobial increases your beauty and skincare products' shelf life without adding any harmful synthetic ingredients.

Fermented with lactic acid bacteria (Leuconostoc Kimchii), Leucidal® Liquid provides a degree of protection against mold, yeasts, and bacteria.

Its light natural scent won't overpower any lotion, cream, or serum. Plus, it's water-soluble, making it easy to mix with your homemade or existing products.

When creating homemade recipes, be sure to challenge test your concentration of Leucidal® Liquid to ensure that you're adding enough to protect against bacteria and other harmful growths.

This is a mild antimicrobial and will not keep skincare products fresh indefinitely.

You can improve any product's shelf life, though, with the addition of Leucidal® Liquid and storing it in a cool, dry place.

Approved by ECO-CERT for use with certified organic cosmetics. It is also on the whole foods premium list of accepted preservatives.

If you are a beginning formulator, use a 4% concentration. A 2-4% concentration of Leucidal® Liquid is an effective antimicrobial natural alternative to synthetic preservatives.

If your formula is water-based, you may want to use Leucidal Complete. Or consider adding preservatives such as Geogard 221 to protect your recipe correctly.

We also recommend microbe or challenge testing of all end eco formulations.

If you want to make your own natural beauty and skincare products, order a bottle of Leucidal® Liquid today.


Leucidal® Liquid is a cosmetic ingredient with mild antimicrobial properties that can safely and efficiently prolong natural and organic cosmetics and skincare products' shelf life.

As the organic movement grows in the skincare and cosmetics industry, more and more major brands turn to natural alternatives to the synthetic preservatives they've traditionally used.

As a result, you'll find Leucidal® Liquid in all kinds of skincare products from many different brands, including:

  • Naked Sun Tropical Tanning Solution
  • Osmosis Skincare Hydralift Firming Gel Mask
  • Dermatologica Age Reversal Eye Complex
  • Elixir Vitae: The Ultimate Wrinkle Solution by Tata Harper

You can use the same antimicrobial that major cosmetics brands use for their products for a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately, a $320 bottle of Elixir Vitae by Tata Harper is out of reach for most of us.

Keep your homemade formulas, natural cosmetics, and organic skincare that doesn't include any preservatives fresh longer by adding 2-4% Leucidal® Liquid.

  • Have a skin care recipe that I want to try. Recipe is mostly oil but contains some water in the 2nd phase. Recipe writer suggests using your leucidal complete formula but I am allergic to coconut in any form. Could I use the leucidal liquid to avoid the coconut contained in the complete formula? Would it work? Or is the leucidal liquid strictly for recipes containing no water at all?

    Yes, you can use Leucidal Liquid in your formula! However, it only provides mild protection. For additional protection, you would need to use Leucidal Liquid with an additional preservative to inhibit mold. You could also use Leucidal SF Max (lactobacillus ferment) and gluconate.

    Yes, you can use Leucidal Liquid with Retinol.

  • Could Leucidal liquid be used in a roll-on deodorant?

    Yes, Leucidal Liquid may be used in a roll-on deodorant formula. If you want stronger protection and a longer shelf-life, you can combine Leucidal with other preservatives. We recommend using gluconate and sodium benzoate.
