Formaldehyde donors in solution

PerryPerry Administrator, Professional Chemist
Does anyone have a link to an image or an explanation of how formaldehyde donor preservatives dissociate into formaldehyde?

Like DMDM Hydantoin + H2O --->  Formaldehyde + DMDM Hydantoin ion

I was looking for this reaction but couldn't find it.
