propyl paraben vs sodium propyl paraben

simple question:
I am going to order preservatives, which one of these should be better for cream and o/w emulsions?
In what are they different (apart from the sodium part, of course)
Are the quantities to be used different?

    Solubility is the only thing different. The sodium salt paraben is soluble in water at RT while propyl paraben should be dissolved in water at 70-80 C.
