The benefits of methylparaben

The methylparaben is also known as the nepodimethyl ester, and the appearance is white crystalline powder or colorless crystalline form. It is soluble in alcohol, ether and acetone, and is very slightly soluble in water. Methylparaben is mainly used as a germicidal preservative for organic synthesis, food, cosmetics and medicine.
Some are exist in plants that can efficiently prevent the growth of fungi, bacteria and yeasts that may cause spoilage. Therefore, they can extend the shelf life of products and directly help to maintain product quality and ensure that they are safe for their families. Preservatives such as methylparaben can be used in cosmetics to prevent the growth of microorganisms, both to protect consumers and to maintain the integrity of the product.
Because methylparaben has phenolic hydroxyl structure, the anti-bacterial property is stronger than benzoic acid and sorbic acid. The mechanism of action is to destroy the cell membrane of the microorganism, make the protein denaturation in the cell, and inhibit the activity of the respiratory enzyme system and the electron transfer enzyme system of microbial cells. The bacteriostatic activity of methylparaben is mainly in the molecular state, and the hydroxyl in its molecules has been esterified and no longer ionized, so it has good bacteriostatic effect in the range of pH3 ~ 8.
According to the long-term use and safety record of these compounds and scientific research, they are the same as most cosmetic ingredients and can be safely used. If you want to know more about the benefits of methylparaben, you can consult our company - Nanjing Jiancheng Chemical Industrial Co.Ltd
