What is Propylene Glycol?

Propylene glycol is commonly used in moisturisers, as it holds moisture in the skin - keeping it soft and young. Great for use in masks, as it prevents over-drying.

Propylene glycol is also a commonly used solvent for active extraction and delivery and is often found in cosmetic active preparations. It can be replaced by its more natural but less powerful cousin Glycerin.
