Key Ingredients & Benefits

Propanediol is an excellent choice to combat dry skin. Propanediol also functions as a humectant.
Glycerin is great for the skin because it acts as a humectant, allowing the skin to retain moisture. Glycerine also increases skin hydration, relieves dryness, and refreshes the skin’s surface. In addition, it’s also an emollient, which means it can soften skin.

Working as an emulsion stabilizer, solvent and a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, Pentylene glycol is also a moisturizer that helps make the product feel great on the skin. It is also widely used to improve water-resistance in sunscreens.
