Bronopol is an antimicrobial agent commonly used as a preservative in many types of cosmetics, personal care products, and topical medications. It is used as an anti-infective, an antimicrobial, fungicide, germicide, bactericide, slimicide, and a wood preservative. It is reportedly very effective against grampositive and gram-negative bacteria, particularly Pseudomonas aeruginosa as well as against fungi and yeasts. This substance may release formaldehyde and cross-reacts with other formaldehyde-releasing substances.

 

 

 

  • The use of bronopol in personal care products (cosmetics, toiletries) has declined since the late 1980s due to the potential formation of nitrosamines.

 

  • While Bronopol is not in itself a nitrosating agent, under conditions where it decomposes (alkaline solution and/or elevated temperatures) it can liberate nitrite and low levels of formaldehyde and these decomposition products can react with any contaminant secondary amines or amides in a personal care formulation to produce significant levels of nitrosamines (due to the toxicity of these substances, the term 'significant' means levels as low as 10s of parts per billion).

 

  • Manufacturers of personal care products are therefore instructed by regulatory authorities to 'avoid the formation of nitrosamines' which might mean removing amines or amides from the formulation, removing Bronopol from a formulation, or using nitrosamine inhibitors.

 

  • Bronopol has been restricted for use in cosmetics in Canada
