p-Anisic acid Application
The paraffin preservatives are controversial because of their potential endocrine disrupting properties, and many children and cosmetics products in Europe and the United States have begun to stop using the type of preservatives and declare "free of parabens" on the product label. As early as 2012, Johnson & Johnson began to announce the elimination or reduction of personal care products in the formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, parabens preservatives and other chemical ingredients to dispel consumer concerns.
4-methoxybenzoic acid has become increasingly significant as multi-functional raw material in the cosmetic. Thus, for example, aqueous compositions and their use in cosmetics are known, which contain 1-30% p-methoxybenzoic acid and up to 50% of one or more polyols, like glycerol. One base, like sodium hydroxide, and citric acid is also contained herein. The compositions have a pH of 5.2.
Apart from its main function as masking agent and aroma component, this raw material's interesting qualities of biologically stabilizing cosmetic and dermatologic formulations as well as being an active ingredient against specific germs in skin- and hair-care products have attracted a lot of attention.
Other main Application
used in oxidation and reduction of cytochrome c in solution through different self-assembled monolayers on gold electrodes using cyclic voltammetry.
used as an intermediate in the preparation of more complex organic compounds.
used to producing 3-Amino-4-methoxybenzoic acid and 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride etc.;
also used as fine chemical raw material to produce aromatics, cosmetics etc, can also take part in many organic syntheses.
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep container closed when not in use.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
