INCI: Hexylene glycol
What is Hexylene glycol ?
Hexylene glycol is an organic compound with two -OH groups, that is why it is called as glycol. It comes as clear liquid with mild/ sweet odor.
Use & Benefits:
Hexylene glycol is a surfactant, emulsifier and viscosity adjusting agent. The molecule of hexylene glycol has a water-loving head part and oil-loving tail part. This property makes it an ideal choice as a surfactant and emulsifier. The emulsifier is meant to hold water and oil together to make the products more stable. It is used to decrease the viscosity of the product. So, in high viscosity product, hexylene glycol is used to “thin” the formulation.
