Kalama® Sodium Benzoate NF/FCC – Powder

Kalama® Sodium Benzoate has a long history of use as a globally trusted, nature identical preservative. It is used to safely and effectively inhibit microbial growth in foods, beverages, cosmetics, toiletries, and pharmaceuticals up to pH 6.5. It is an FDA GRAS food additive, approved for use as an antimicrobial agent, flavoring agent, and adjuvant (21 CFR § 184.1733). Kalama Sodium Benzoate is available in several forms: Dense Grains, Extruded Dust-Free (EDF), and Powder. Emerald also offers Purox® S Grains, the highest purity sodium benzoate available worldwide.

For Food & Beverages

Kalama Sodium Benzoate is manufactured to very high purity and quality standards, ensuring an excellent taste and odor profile. It is produced at Emerald’s food-grade operation certified to meet FSSC 22000 for food safety. Common food and beverage applications include: fruit juices and salads, jellies, dressings and sauces, low-alcohol beverages and non-alcoholic beer.

For Personal Care & Cosmetics

Kalama Sodium Benzoate is a green-label alternative to preservatives under scrutiny: sensitizers such as isothiazolinones (BIT, MIT, MCIT), irritants, parabens, and formaldehyde releasers. It is authorized for use under ECOCERT COSMOS, EU Ecolabel, and Nordic Swan. Kalama Sodium Benzoate is often used with Kalama Benzyl Alcohol NF/FCC to leverage the ingredients’ natural antimicrobial synergy. Common personal care and cosmetic applications include: lotions, moisturizers, and topical ointments, soaps, shampoo and conditioner, wipes, oral care products and feminine hygiene products.
