Purox® B Food/Pharma Benzoic Acid

Emerald Performance Materials makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

BuroxB Food/Pharma is an ultra pure grade benzoic acid. It offers the opportunity to replace the benzoate salts selectively by ultra pure benzoic acid in applications where solubility and speed of dissolution are not important. BuroxB is also used as a pH adjustor and/or preservative in cosmetic and toiletry formulations. Since most of these personal care products contain natural components (fats, oils, etc), they are very sensitive to microbial degradation. It is ideal for use in bath preparations, lipsticks, toothpastes and mouth washes, skin cleaners and skin conditioners.
