Agricultural field: Glyoxylic acid can be used as a pesticide raw material for the production and production of pesticides, such as insecticides, etc.

Outstanding Features of Octyl P-Methoxycinnamate

Highly reactive: Glyoxylic acid is an acidic substance that interacts with various functional groups such as bases, alcohols, and ethers, and can undergo various reactions such as esterification, transesterification, and condensation. This high reactivity allows glyoxylic acid to be used as a key raw material in the synthesis of many organic compounds.

Strong solubility: Glyoxylic acid is well soluble in water and miscible with most organic solvents. This high solubility makes glyoxylic acid easy to handle and extract during the synthesis process.

High safety: Glyoxylic acid is a relatively mild acidic substance. Glyoxylic acid is less volatile during chemical reactions.

Large market demand: As an important chemical raw material, glyoxylic acid is widely used in medicine, chemical industry, food and other fields. With the development of the industry and the increase in demand, the market demand for glyoxylic acid is also increasing.

Octyl P-Methoxycinnamate as UV Absorber in Cosmetics

Mainly used as UV absorber in cosmetics. Glyoxylic acid is an organic compound with good ultraviolet absorption properties. It can effectively absorb ultraviolet rays and protect the skin from ultraviolet damage.

In cosmetics, glyoxylic acid is often added to sunscreen, day lotion, BB cream and other products to provide sun protection. It can absorb UVB and UVA in ultraviolet rays and effectively block ultraviolet rays.

In addition, glyoxylic acid also has antioxidant properties, which can inhibit the production of free radicals and protect the skin from oxidative damage. Therefore, glyoxylic acid can not only act as a UV absorber, but also act as an antioxidant, making the skin healthier and smoother.
