Ethyl p-hydroxybenzoate, also known as ethylparaben, is a synthetic preservative, which is obtained by esterification of p-hydroxybenzoic acid with ethanol under the catalysis of sulfuric acid.

Colorless fine crystals or white crystalline powder. Odorless and tasteless, with a slight tingling sensation. Melting point 116~118℃. It is hardly soluble in water, but easily soluble in ethanol, propylene glycol, and peanut oil.

It has a strong antibacterial effect on molds and yeasts, and a weak effect on bacteria, especially gram-negative bacteria, and lactic acid bacteria.

Its antibacterial power is stronger than benzoic acid and sorbic acid, and it has good effects in the pH range of 4-8. Its antibacterial action mechanism is to inhibit the activity of the respiratory enzymes and electron transfer enzymes of microbial cells and to destroy the cell membrane structure of microbes.

Because it is difficult to dissolve in water, it is generally mixed with propyl p-hydroxybenzoate, sodium ethyl p-hydroxybenzoate, etc., which not only improves the water solubility but also has a certain synergistic effect.

Quality standard: GB 8850-1988 (mandatory national standard), content (calculated on a dry basis) ≥99%; loss on drying ≤0.5%; residue on ignition ≤0.05%; melting point 115~118℃; acidity: qualified; sulfate ash content ≤0.024%; p-hydroxybenzoic acid and salicylic acid: qualified; aldehydes (calculated as propionaldehyde): qualified; arsenic ≤0.0001%; ​​heavy metals ≤0.001%.

Paraben is a paraben. It has good bacteriostatic effects in a wide pH range. Due to its low toxicity and non-irritation, it is widely used as a preservative in food, cosmetics, and medicines. One of the commonly used preservatives and antibacterial agents.

The larger the hydrocarbon chain of parabens, the stronger the lipophilicity, and the greater this effect.

At the same time, the greater the amount of ester adsorbed by the bacteria, the greater the inhibition of bacterial development.

Paraben esters are the most widely used in cosmetics.

Except for saturated solutions that are irritating to the eyes, the general concentration below 5% is almost non-toxic and non-irritating.

In fact, the concentration of 0.2% for chemical products has a good antibacterial effect.

Paraben is also widely used in liquids, injections, ointments, pills, tablets, bandages, and surgical instruments for sterilization and antisepsis, as well as for the cleaning and disinfection of surgical instruments.

In industry, it is used for the antiseptic and anti-mildew of oil, fat, starch, and rubber solution. In short, it has broad development prospects.

Ethylparaben preservative is a “bacteriostatic agent”, not a fungicide.

This means that bacteria can not multiply in a certain concentration of the preservative solution, but they can survive. When the concentration is lower than this concentration, the bacteria can multiply.

In other words, microorganisms that cannot reproduce under a certain concentration of ester preservatives will start to grow and reproduce again when you dilute the preservatives in the environment.
