INCI: Propanediol

Propanediol is a natural, green, propylene glycol alternative derived from natural materials. It is a skin conditioner, preservative booster, and solvent with a light, non-sticky, slightly dry skin feel.

Propanediol increases hydration when used in hair and body products without feeling sticky compared to glycerin. If used with glycerin, propanediol shows a synergistic effect with glycerin when used at reduced rates. It shows a low potential to irritate or sensitize skin when used up to 75%.
