Butylene glycol analysis laboratory

As a cosmetics manufacturer, you wish to have the butylene glycol present in your products analyzed

What is butylene glycol?

Butylene Glycol, also known as butanediol, is a petroleum-derived chemical compound often used as a humectant in skin care products. It prevents the product from drying out and makes the formulation more resistant to moisture. In sensitive individuals, butylene glycol can be irritating to the skin, eyes and nasal passages. However, it is considered to be the least irritating of all glycols. It can be authorized in Organic, when it is biosourced and obtained by fermentation from sugar.

Butylene Glycol can also be used as a solvent in many preparations, preventing ingredients such as pigments or dyes from clumping together.
