What is Potassium Sorbate (Sorbic Acid) ?

Potassium sorbate is a potassium salt version of sorbic acid, a polyunsaturated fat used to inhibit mold growth via its anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. The most effective preservative against food spoilage and micro-organisms Sorbic acid was first isolated from the pressed unripened berries of the Rowan, or Mountain Ash tree in 1859, by A.W. Hoffman. It is widely used in the food industry and few substances have had the kind of extensive, rigorous, long-term testing that sorbic acid and its salts have had. It has been found to be non-toxic even when taken in large quantities, and breaks down in the body into water and carbon dioxide.

Potassium sorbate is water soluble and can be used effectively in both lotions and water-based liquid soap and shampoo formulas. When used at the pH levels of most mildly acidic food products (pH 5.5-6.0), sorbates are the more effective preservatives against a wider spectrum of food spoilage microorganisms than benzoates or propionates. Above pH 4.0, sorbates are more effective than sodium benzoate and sodium or calcium propionate. At pH 2.5 to 3.0, sorbates are still somewhat more effective than sodium benzoate as a yeast and mold inhibitor and more than twice as potent as propionates. Sorbates are at their optimum effectiveness used below pH 6.0. They function, however, up to pH 6.5 but are relatively ineffective at pH 7.0 or above
