General description

Nipabutyl is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent designed for preservation of a wide range of cosmetics, toiletries and topical pharmaceuticals. Nipabutyl is suitable to preserve both rinse- off and leave- on formulations.


Typical use concentrations of Nipabutyl is 0.1 – 0.3 %.
Combinations of p- Hydroxybenzoic acid esters, e.g. with Nipasol M, Nipagin A or Nipabutyl exhibit increased activity compared with individual esters.

pH stability
Nipabutyl remains fully stable over a wide pH range from 4- 8. In general the lower the pH of the formulation, the more active is Nipabutyl. That can result in a lower use concentration when the pH of the formulation is more acidic.

Temperature stability
Nipabutyl is stable up to 80 °C.
