Product Introduction:

Phenoxyethanol is an organic compound with a molecular formula of C8H10O2. It is a colorless and slightly viscous liquid with an aromatic odor, slightly soluble in water, easily soluble in ethanol and sodium hydroxide, and can be etherified by ethylene glycol and phenol. synthesis.

Phenoxyethanol has antibacterial effects (usually used with quaternary ammonium salts), and is often used as a substitute for the highly toxic sodium azide in biological buffer solutions, because phenoxyethanol has low toxicity and is chemically China is not active on copper and lead. 2-Phenoxyethanol usually functions as a preservative in cosmetics, skin care products, vaccines and medicines.

Antiseptic and sterilization of 2-Phenoxyethanol:

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

However, 2-Phenoxyethanol has poor antibacterial effect on fungi, so it is rarely used alone. It is usually used together with other preservatives or antiseptic synergists to increase the antibacterial spectrum and reduce the amount of use. It is typically used in combination with ethylhexyl glycerol.

In fact, 2-Phenoxyethanol is not only used as a preservative. If other raw materials in cosmetic formulations can be well compounded, it will not only enhance product effects, but also reduce costs. Therefore, the real research and development of cosmetics is really not just a mixture of several or dozens of raw materials.

Role and use:

  1. Used as an organic solvent, phenoxyethanol has a higher boiling point and lower volatility. It is used as a solvent for penetrating impressions, markings, stamp pads and ballpoint pen inks. It is often used in combination with benzyl alcohol to improve performance. It is an ideal solvent for cellulose acetate, resins, dyes, photosensitive materials, etc.
  2. Used as a textile auxiliaries for printing pastes.
  3. Phenoxyethanol is a gas chromatographic stationary liquid and a standard for chromatographic analysis. It has a bactericidal effect and is a hypoallergenic, highly effective, broad-spectrum disinfectant and preservative.
  4. Used as perfume fixative (for soap and cosmetics) and diluent.
  5. 2-Phenoxyethanol is also used in fish anesthetics to calm fish, reduce activity, reduce oxygen consumption, reduce activity of carbon dioxide and ammonia excretion, and facilitate transportation, induction of labor and other operations.
