According to reports, this raw material is safe and stable. The recommended value is 0.1–1.0%. The formulator should use this ingredient at a pH of 4-5 and avoid using it with Carbomer, as the pH neutralization will exceed 5.5. Preferred thickeners/stabilizers include ammonium acryloyl dimethyl taurate/VP copolymer, xanthan gum, arabinogalactan, and hydroxyethylcellulose, which are stable at low pH.
Ultraviolet radiation may cause discoloration of raw materials. UV absorbers such as benzophenone 3 improve color stability; in addition, adding about 0.1% of a chelating agent to formulations containing resorcinol can help prevent discoloration.
Formulators must check the compatibility of nitrogen-containing active substances (such as amino acids, urea, and protein) with the raw materials before adding them to the formula. It should also be noted that resorcinol may cause the instability of certain fragrances.
