Global Phenoxyethanol Market: Overview
Phenoxyethanol is an organic chemical compound, a glycol ether often used in dermatological products such as skin creams and sunscreen. It is a colorless oily liquid. It is a bactericide (usually used in conjunction with quaternary ammonium compounds). Phenoxyethanol is used in many applications such as cosmetics, vaccines and pharmaceuticals as a preservative. In addition to cosmetic applications, it is also used as a fixative for perfumes, an insect repellent, a topical antiseptic, a solvent for cellulose acetate, some dyes, inks, and resins, in preservatives, pharmaceuticals, and in organic synthesis. It is important for cosmetic products to be microbiologically stable; that is, even after opening, the contents of the product must remain resistant to microorganisms such as bacteria or yeasts, which can find their way in through the air or via fingers. Water, which is present in most cosmetic products, is a fertile breeding ground for such microorganisms. Thus much of the products require phenoxyethanol as a preservative.
