Potassium sorbate is a widely used preservative in skincare products due to its ability to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and extend the shelf life of cosmetic formulations. It is a salt derived from sorbic acid, a naturally occurring compound found in certain fruits. Potassium sorbate is considered safe for use in skincare products and is a popular choice among formulators for its effectiveness in preventing spoilage.


  • Preserves product freshness: Potassium sorbate helps inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and molds, thereby preventing spoilage and extending the shelf life of skincare products.
  • Minimal impact on product performance: It has little to no effect on the texture, appearance, or efficacy of skincare formulations when used within recommended concentrations.

Usage: Potassium sorbate is typically used as a preservative in skincare products, including creams, lotions, serums, cleansers, and masks. It is added to prevent the growth of microorganisms and maintain product integrity.

Recommended Usage in Skincare Products:

The recommended usage of potassium sorbate may vary depending on the specific formulation and regulatory guidelines. In general, it is used at concentrations ranging from 0.1% to 0.5% of the total formulation. However, it is important to conduct stability testing to determine the optimal concentration for individual products.

Solubility: Potassium sorbate is highly soluble in water, making it easy to incorporate into water-based skincare formulations. It dissolves readily and can be added directly to the water phase of formulations.


  • Skincare products: Potassium sorbate can be added to various skincare products to act as a preservative and ensure their longevity.
  • Creams and lotions: It can be included in creams and lotions to prevent microbial growth and maintain product freshness.
  • Serums and oils: Potassium sorbate can be added to serums and oil-based formulations to enhance their stability and prevent microbial contamination.
  • Masks and cleansers: It is commonly used in masks and cleansers to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and maintain their efficacy.

Storage: Potassium sorbate should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. It should be kept tightly sealed in its original container to prevent moisture absorption, which can affect its quality. Following proper storage practices can help maintain its effectiveness as a preservative.
