General description

Menthyl anthranilate, popularly known as meradimate, is a broad-spectrum UV sunscreen agent. It is commonly used in personal care products including sunscreens, hair care, and cosmetic products.
Pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control, provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the preparation of in-house working standards.

Application

Menthyl anthranilate may be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in raw materials and personal care products by high performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography.
These Secondary Standards are qualified as Certified Reference Materials. These are suitable for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration requirements.
