What is Sodium Methylparaben?

Sodium Methylparaben, whose Chinese name is Sodium Methylparaben or Sodium Methylparaben, is a commonly used preservative and belongs to the Parabens series. Its chemical formula is C8H7NaO3, and its CAS registration number is 5026-62-0.

In industry, especially in the cosmetics and personal care product industries, sodium methylparaben is used as a water-soluble preservative additive, mainly used to prevent product spoilage and extend the shelf life, and to combat the growth of bacteria and fungi. It inhibits microbial reproduction by interfering with the function of microbial cell membranes, thereby protecting products from contamination.

In addition, due to its water-soluble characteristics, sodium methylparaben is particularly suitable in some formulations that require a water-soluble preservative system.
