p-Anisic acid Application
The paraffin preservatives are controversial because of their
potential endocrine disrupting properties, and many children and
cosmetics products in Europe and the United States have begun to
stop using the type of preservatives and declare "free of parabens"
on the product label. As early as 2012, Johnson & Johnson began
to announce the elimination or reduction of personal care products
in the formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, parabens preservatives
and other chemical ingredients to dispel consumer concerns.
4-methoxybenzoic acid has become increasingly significant as
multi-functional raw material in the cosmetic. Thus, for example,
aqueous compositions and their use in cosmetics are known, which
contain 1-30% p-methoxybenzoic acid and up to 50% of one or more
polyols, like glycerol. One base, like sodium hydroxide, and citric
acid is also contained herein. The compositions have a pH of 5.2.
Apart from its main function as masking agent and aroma component,
this raw material's interesting qualities of biologically
stabilizing cosmetic and dermatologic formulations as well as being
an active ingredient against specific germs in skin- and hair-care
products have attracted a lot of attention.
Other main Application
- used in oxidation and reduction of cytochrome c in solution through
different self-assembled monolayers on gold electrodes using cyclic
- used as an intermediate in the preparation of more complex organic
- used to producing 3-Amino-4-methoxybenzoic acid and
4-methoxybenzoyl chloride etc.;
- also used as fine chemical raw material to produce aromatics,
cosmetics etc, can also take part in many organic syntheses.
