INTRODUCTION

Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, also known as IPBC, is an antimicrobial ingredient commonly used in cosmetics. It appears as a white, crystalline powder. It is not a paraben; it belongs to a different chemical class called carbamates. It is soluble in both water and oil-based systems. IPBC was invented in the 1970s and has a long history of effective use as an antifungal technology.

MANUFACTURE

IPBC is typically synthesized through a reaction between iodine, butylamine, and carbamic acid. The reaction forms the Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate compound, which is then further processed and purified to obtain the final product. .
