Natural Butylene-glycol


A clear, odourless and colourless ingredient that has excellent hydrating properties.

Butylene-glycol can be used as a humectant to retain moisture in personal care ingredients, and also a viscosity decreasing agent which helps to reduce thickness and stickiness of formulations.

Flavour manufacturers may use butylene-glycol as a solvent to help dissolve and distribute flavouring agents in various applications. Its solvency properties can aid in achieving homogenous mixtures and consistent flavour profiles in products such as beverages and confectionery.
