The efficacy, traits and application of octyl glycol

Jun 15, 2019

Octyl glycol is both a good moisturizer and antiseptic, and a versatile alternative to preservatives. It can prevent bacteria and yeast from exceeding the standard in water matrix formula; help to maintain the stability and viscosity of the emulsion; and assist emulsifiers such as polyglycerol-3-stearate and sodium stearoyl lactate to play a better role. 

Under normal circumstances, the recommended dosage of octyl glycol is 0.3-0.5%, so that it can fully play its role without causing harm to the human body. The raw material for the production of octyl glycol comes from coconut, oil palm or animal fat, but needs further processing to make the finished ginkgol.www.china-zhufengchem.com
