Ethylhexylglycerin - The Hydrating Agent

Ethylhexylglycerin is a synthetic compound derived from plants, specifically from grains and plants like sugar cane. It is often used in skincare products as a conditioning agent and skin-conditioning agent due to its ability to help hydrate and soften the skin. The scientific name Ethylhexylglycerin is derived from its chemical composition, which includes ethyl, hexyl, and glycerin components. This combination of elements gives Ethylhexylglycerin its unique properties that make it a popular ingredient in skincare formulations.

Ethylhexylglycerin is a multifunctional ingredient commonly used in skincare products for its emollient and skin-conditioning properties. It acts as a surfactant, which means it helps to reduce the surface tension between substances, making it easier to spread and absorb into the skin. Ethylhexylglycerin also serves as a preservative booster, enhancing the efficacy of other preservatives in skincare formulations. This ingredient is also known for its moisturising effects, helping to keep the skin hydrated and soft.
