SharoSENSE™ Plus Natural


SharoSENSE™ Plus Natural is bringing the best features of natural ingredients. Sharon Laboratories’ mission is to fill the gap between chemical and natural. In our development process, many natural elements and food ingredients were screened for anti-bacterial and anti-fungi activity. This R&D process resulted in an innovative preservative solution, SharoSENSE™ Plus. This preservative solution is based on Natural Maltol, which was identified as a key ingredient in this concept.

Maltol is a naturally occurring organic compound primarily used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer (food additive E636). We researched and found out that Maltol has interesting properties as a preservative. Maltol can be found in the bark of larch tree, Katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum), in pine needles, and more. It comes as a white crystalline powder. It has EWG score of 1, GRAS, found in Cosing, and has good solubility in water.

SharoSENSE™ Plus Natural properties bring great value to the ever-growing demand for safer preservative solutions, using less preservatives, while gaining better protection, at a wide pH range.
