Methylparaben, also methyl paraben, one of the parabens, is a preservative with the chemical formula CH3(C6H4(OH)COO). It is the methyl ester of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. Methylparaben is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract or through the skin. It is hydrolyzed to p-hydroxybenzoic acid and rapidly excreted without accumulation in the body. Acute toxicity studies have shown that methylparaben is practically non-toxic by both oral and parenteral administration. In a population with normal skin, methylparaben is practically non-irritating and non-sensitizing; however, allergic reactions to ingested parabens have been reported. Studies indicate that methylparaben applied on the skin reacts with UVB leading to increased skin aging and DNA damage. Some people have reported allergies to methylparaben. Contact dermatitis, for example, occurs when the skin has an allergic reaction to something it comes in contact with. Dermatitis usually occurs in the form of a rash that clears up on its own. Contact dermatitis rashes can include: itching, bumps and blisters, dry, scaly skin, swelling, tenderness, or burning, If the dermatitis occurs near the eyes, you may experience redness or swelling of the eyelids. Other sensitivities can occur when products with methylparaben come in contact with skin that is broken or damaged.
