Propanediol / Other names: 1-3 Propanediol
Propanediol is a clear, odourless, thick liquid substance of natural origin belonging to glycols. It is a derivative of fermented maize starch.
Our Propane-1,3-diol is produced organically. Glycerol has been converted into 1,3-propanediol by fermentation using certain bacteria.
Dupont has developed recombinant microorganisms (more specifically from Escherichia Coli) that can produce propanediol directly from glucose (sugar). This method requires less energy than the previous one and is based on renewable raw materials.
What is propanediol used for?
Propanediol is mainly used as a solvent and emollient. It is a natural alternative to conventional synthetic glycols. It is used to replace glycerine and propylene glycol (a synthetic substance derived from oil). Propanediol is preferred by manufacturers of natural skin care products because it is natural, less environmentally damaging and non-irritating to the skin.
What are the benefits of propanediol?
As an ingredient in care products, propanediol has several advantages. Although propanediol is mainly used as a solvent, fragrance and preservative, it also has a moisturizing and soothing effect on the skin. It is an accepted component for use in organically certified skin care products and cosmetics.
Is propanediol harmful?
Propanediol is harmless when used as intended.
Is propanediol safe for the skin?
It is a safe component of organic and natural cosmetic care products.
In general, propanediol cannot cause allergic reactions and is therefore safe for the skin. However, when purchasing a conventional propanediol skin care product, it is advisable to check whether propanediol comes from natural ingredients.
Is propanediol halal?
propanediol is a halal ingredient and is also used in various halal cosmetics. In addition, propanediol is a Kosher component and suitable for vegans.
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid (INCI name: Ascorbic Acid) is a vitamin naturally present in human skin (Shindo et al., 1994).
Vitamin C stimulates the skin to produce collagen responsible for skin firmness (Robertson & Schwartz, 1953; Murad et al., 1981). In addition, vitamin C reduces the damage caused by exposure to harmful substances and a sufficient amount of vitamin C in the skin is crucial for good wound healing (Dunphy et al., 1956; Boyce et al., 2002; Arnold & Barbul, 2006).
