Propanediol 1,3
CAS: 504-63-2

Propanediol will be back in stock late July or early August.  This is on backorder with the manufacturer and we're advised this is when it is expected to be released.

Propanediol 1,3 (referred to as Propanediol hereafter) is a natural, green, propylene glycol alternative derived from corn sugar, used as a humectant, hair and skin conditioner, preservative booster, and solvent with a light, non-sticky, slightly dry skin feel.

Propanediol increases hydration when used in hair and body products, and at 5%, performs better than propylene glycol and butylene glycol. When combined with glycerin, Propanediol shows a synergistic effect that reduces the tackiness of glycerin, while offering the benefits of increased levels of hydration. At levels up to 75%, it shows low potential to irritate or sensitize skin.

In surfactant systems, Propanediol increases the clarity of surfactant systems and viscosity while decreasing the amount of salt necessary to thicken a product. It improves flash foam, and produces more elegant systems with creamier lather and denser foam.

In hair care products, such as shampoo, conditioner, leave on conditioners, or styling aids, it offers a cleaner feeling after rinsing while increasing moisturization, improving detangling, reducing static, and improving wet and dry combing.

In all products, it decreases the freezing point and increases stability in freeze/thaw and heated tests.

Propanediol may boost the efficacy of preservatives. Its efficacy was demonstrated when combined with preservatives containing phenoxyethanol against yeast, gram-positive, and gram-negative organisms, as well as mold.

  • 0.25% Euxyl PE 9010 and 2% Propanediol proved effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (bacteria) and Aspergillus niger (mold), as well as at 4% against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli (bacteria) and 6% against Candida albicans (yeast).
  • Similar results were shown using 0.25% Optiphen with 2% against Staphylococcus aureus (gram-positive bacteria), Escherichia coli (gram-negative bacteria), and Aspergillus niger (mold), and Candida albicans (yeast) at 6%.
  • Reduced levels of Optiphen at 0.125% and 6% Propanediol were also shown to be effective.

Euxyl PE 9010 and Optiphen are both available through Lotioncrafter (see You Might Also Like links).

Propanediol is an excellent solvent for harder to dissolve ingredients like salicylic acid, ferulic acid, allantoin, and ascorbic acid.

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

How did I not know of your company?? I ordered in a panic on a Thursday because I had orders to fill for lotion & I was out of emulsifying wax & preservative. I was hoping for maybe a Monday delivery. The package was on my doorstep on Saturday...I live in Florida!! You rock! I just placed another order & you are now my "go to" website. Thank you for your excellent service.
