Parabens including Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben are widely used as preservatives in cosmetics, foods, and drugs. Parabens have been extensively studied and are safe as currently used. They are commonly encountered as preservatives in multidose vials of amide local anesthetic (LA) agents. Parabens noncovalently denature proteins through their phenol moiety and haptinate proteins through their benzoic acid moiety.
Methylparaben, one of the most commonly used parabens, Methylparaben is an anti-fungal and preservative that may be found in many products including food, drugs, cosmetics and skin cream. It comes from benzoic acid and is believed to have rejuvenating properties for skin.
Methylparaben is an ester of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. It is a fine crystalline powder, which is odourless, tasteless and non-irritating.
Nanjing Jiancheng Chemical Industrial Co.Ltd. Parabens are some of the oldest cosmetic preservatives and have been used since the 1920s.
They are used globally and are permitted by every world health authority (500 independent safety studies have been carried out over the decades). Scare-mongering ‘studies’ into their potentially negative effects have now been widely debunked.
Parabens occur naturally in some fruits and vegetables, including blueberries.
Methylparaben is used to control the growth of bacteria, yeasts and moulds.
The parabens are still the safest and mildest we can find. We constantly review and investigate cosmetic preservatives, and we consider any sound scientific evidence. They are safe to handle during manufacture and guarantee the quality and safety of the products we want our customers to enjoy.
