Hexylene Glycol (HxG) is a colorless organic compound with a low odor and a low toxic, low-volatility nature. It is a trihydric alcohol, colorlessly hygroscopic liquid with a sweetish taste and is miscible with water in any proportion.
Hexylene Glycol is well-known as a fine humectant, surfactant and solvent, providing versatile performance in many applications including cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals, wood, leather, surface protection and other household products. In cosmetics, it functions as a conditioning agent to improve wet combing properties and surface protection. When used as a surfactant, it can improve wetting, emulsifying and foaming characteristics. As a solvent, Hexylene Glycol works in combination with other solvents to improve the applicability of solutions.
HxG is widely used as a low-toxicity preservative in formulations applied to humans and animals. This formulation typically contains 10-20% concentration of Hexylene Glycol, to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and to increase the shelf life of the product. It is also used as a nonionic surfactant.
HxG is known to be environmentally friendly, widely available and cost-effective, making it attractive for use in many applications across various industries. In general, it is used in a variety of formulations, such a cleaning agents, cosmetics, plumbing, air fresheners and other products.
HxG is the preferred component of formulations due to its superior solubility, low vapor pressure and low toxicity. When combined with other materials, it can produce desired results for specific applications. We provide a range of HxG grades, molecular weight and solution concentrations to cater to your needs with ease.
