Propylparaben Market

Propylparaben Market:Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

Propylparaben is the n-propyl ester of p-hydroxybenzoic acid, and is commercially also known as nipasol. Propylparaben belongs to the family of parabens. Similar to other parabens, Propylparaben is naturally available in many plants and natural substances.

Methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben are some of the other types of parabens. Propylparaben is manufactured by chemical esterification of p-hydroxybenzoic acid with the n- propanol alcohol. Propylparaben is extensively used as a cosmetic ingredient and as a preservative.

According to European Chemical Substance Information System (ESIS), ethylparaben and propylparaben are produced in volumes between 10 and 1000 tonnes/year and hence fall under the batch of low production chemical (LPV).

Propylparaben is used as a preservative in cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry for its antimicrobial activity moreover, propylparaben is less toxic in nature which is a major advantage for industries to use in products which come in contact with the human or animal skin.

Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics products get affected if they do not contain preservatives. The antimicrobial property works very well in the acidic medium but is effective in basic mediums as well. Propylparaben is primarily used in water based products.

The economic feasibility of propylparaben makes it viable for use in multiple heath care products such as shampoos, conditioner, and shower gels. Personal care products also makes wise use of propyl paraben in the products such as foundation, lipstick, and mascara.
