What is Phenoxyethanol Inci?

Phenoxyethanol Inci is a solvent with high boiling point as well as also low volatility. It is an oily fluid at area temperature with a somewhat fragrant along with astringent taste. At the same time, it is additionally a hypoallergenic, broad-spectrum and also high-efficiency anti-bacterial as well as bactericide. It can be liquified in both water and oil, and also is easy to use. Consequently, it has actually been utilized a growing number of often in the light industry and daily chemical industry recently.

Additionally, Phenoxyethanol Inci is additionally useful in other industries, such as used as a solvent for stamps, engravings, ink pads and ballpoint pen inks that need penetration; as a perfect solvent for cellulose acetate, materials, dyes, photosensitive materials, and so on; Utilized as gas chromatography fixative, chromatographic analysis criterion; utilized as soap as well as aesthetic fixative, diluent; likewise made use of as fish anesthetic to calm fish, decrease task, lower oxygen usage, decrease CO2 and NH3 discharging, It is convenient for transportation, induction of labor and also various other procedures.

Phenoxyethanol Inci Function and Use

  1. Phenoxyethanol Inci has great solubility and also miscibility. It is typically used as a diluent for fragrances, an ideal solvent for parabens, and a better solvent and also penetration help for hair dyes and nail gloss. Solvents as well as modifiers for inks, ballpoint pen oils, penetrants for ink pads. Phenoxyethanol has certain bacteriostatic activity versus Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and has bacteriostatic impact on both Gram-positive and also adverse microorganisms. Due to its substantial solubility in water, white mineral oil, isopropyl palmitate and various other cosmetic parts. On top of that, it has high efficiency and wide spectrum, low poisoning (rat oral power LD50=1260mg/kg) and no sensitive irritability (2.2% aqueous option is not annoying to the skin). Therefore, it is extensively made use of in cosmetic lotions and also hair shampoos. Phenoxyethanol Inci is also an essential medical medication and also is typically used for surface infections such as skin wounds, burns, and also heats. As well as the therapy of abscesses as well as abscesses. The professional effect is excellent.
  2. Phenoxyethanol Inci has a high boiling point as well as low volatility. It is made use of as a solvent for penetrating marking, marking, pad as well as ballpoint pen inks. It is commonly made use of in combination with benzyl alcohol to enhance efficiency. It is a perfect solvent for cellulose acetate, materials, dyes, photosensitive materials, and so on. It is made use of as a fabric auxiliary for printing pastes. Phenoxyethanol is a gas chromatographic stationary fluid as well as a criterion for chromatographic analysis. It has antiseptic impact as well as is a hypoallergenic, high-efficiency, broad-spectrum disinfectant and chemical. Scent fixative (for soap as well as cosmetics), diluent, as well as additionally used as anesthetic for fish to relax fish, reduce activity, reduce oxygen consumption, decrease the excretion of carbon dioxide as well as ammonia gas, as well as facilitate transport, induction of labor and also various other operations. conduct.
  3. Phenoxyethanol Inci is utilized in natural synthesis resources, covering monomers and artificial plasticizers. Its esters are fragrance fixatives, fungicides as well as insect repellants. Phenoxyethanol Inci Glycerol Ear Decline for Pseudomonas aeruginosa otitis media.

Preservative and Bactericidal Properties of Phenoxyethanol Inci

The bactericidal mechanism of Phenoxyethanol Inci is to act on the cell membrane, improve the permeability of the cell membrane to potassium ions, and inhibit the enzymatic activity (such as malate dehydrogenase) required for cell growth. Phenoxyethanol has specific bacteriostatic activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and its 2% solution or emulsion can be used to treat surface wounds, burns and abscesses infected by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In addition, it also has bacteriostatic effect on Gram-positive and negative bacteria.

However, Phenoxyethanol Inci has poor bacteriostatic effect on fungi, so it is rarely used alone, and is usually used in combination with other preservatives or antiseptic synergists to increase the antibacterial spectrum and reduce the amount of use. Typically, it is used in combination with ethylhexylglycerol. Germany Shumei Co., Ltd. launched a new preservative product-Euxyl PE9010 for the global market in 2005. This product is obtained by compounding traditional Phenoxyethanol Inci and Shumei’s unique multifunctional active ingredient ethylhexylglycerol through a unique process.

In fact, both ethylhexylglycerol and Phenoxyethanol Inci are not very effective in inhibiting fungi. Looking at the figure below, it can be seen that until 168 hours later, the effect of the two in inhibiting fungi is not obvious, but the combination of the two The obtained Euxyl PE9010 has a significant effect on inhibiting fungi. In fact, it is not just preservatives. If other raw materials in cosmetic formulations can be well compounded, it can not only enhance the effect of the product, but also reduce the cost. Therefore, the real research and development of cosmetics is really not just a mixture of several or dozens of raw materials.

Is Phenoxyethanol Inci Harmful to The Skin?

Consumption of huge doses of Phenoxyethanol Inci can be fatal. However, when phenoxyethanol is made use of locally, the concentration is less than 1.0%, which is within the risk-free variety. Is ethanol metabolized to acetaldehyde in huge quantities on the skin in addition to whether it is soaked up in substantial quantities by the skin. These two are likewise incredibly vital for Phenoxyethanol Inci. For skin with an intact obstacle, phenoxyethanol is the fastest bad glycol ether. If the metabolic path of phenoxyethanol resembles that of ethanol, after that unsteady acetaldehyde is developed, followed by phenoxyacetic acid, or else totally complimentary radicals are produced.

Don’t fret yet! When we talked about retinol previously, we likewise mentioned the chemical system associated with the metabolism of Phenoxyethanol Inci, which happens under the stratum corneum. So we need to understand how much phenoxyethanol is taken in with the skin. In a research examining the absorbency of water-based sealers consisting of phenoxyethanol as well as other antimicrobial ingredients, pigskin (the closest in leaks in the structure to human beings) absorbed 2% phenoxyethanol, which increased to only 1.4 after 6 hours. %, boosted to 11.3% in 28 hours.

These researches show that Phenoxyethanol Inci is not extremely taken in and also transformed at concentrations less than 1% and also does not create harmful dosages of metabolites. There are likewise researches with newborns more youthful than 27 weeks and obtained similar outcomes. “Compared with ethanol-based chemicals, liquid phenoxyethanol did not trigger substantial skin damage,” the research study stated. “Phenoxyethanol was without a doubt taken in right into the skin of newborn infants, however the oxidation product phenoxyacetic acid was not formed in significant amounts.”. This result also shows that phenoxyethanol is metabolized at the greatest price in the skin without creating significant damage. If babies can handle it, what are you afraid of?
