“DuPont’s xylitol manufacturing know-how permits using a minimal quantity of chemical compounds, water and vitality and thus reveals a decrease carbon footprint in comparison with standard processes.”

A lately revealed study within the Korean Journal of Microbiology titled ‘Analysis of xylitol as an agent that controls the expansion of pores and skin microbes: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Cutibacterium acnes’ has proven that XIVIA® Xylitol has a optimistic impact on pores and skin microbial development.

The researchers’ purpose was to research whether or not XIVIA® Xylitol, a naturally occurring, sustainable wood-based sweetener—broadly authorised to be used in meals and oral hygiene merchandise—may have a possible function in pores and skin microbial development. The expansion of sure pores and skin micro organism, as pure cultures, was measured within the presence of xylitol.
