Butylene Glycol (BG) is a humectant, a chemical that helps your skin (or other substances) retain moisture. It is also a solubilizer, which means it makes other substances (such as fat) more soluble in water. Butylene Glycol is commonly used in cosmetics, that has multiple functions, including a penetration enhancer or as a slip agent.
butylene glycol. Commonly-used ingredient that has multiple functions in cosmetics, including as a texture enhancer. It's similar to propylene glycol, but has a lighter texture.
Today's Chemical: Butylene glycol. EWG Skin Deep Hazard Score: 0-1. What is it: Butylene glycol is a solvent, humectant, and skin conditioner. Butylene glycol is added to formulas because it helps draw moisture from the air and bring it to your skin (called a humectant).
Along with other glycols and glycerol, propylene glycol is a humectant (hydrating) and delivery ingredient used in cosmetics. There are websites and spam e-mails stating that propylene glycol is really industrial antifreeze and that it's the major ingredient in brake and hydraulic fluids. These ...

Butylene Glycol is a small organic alcohol commonly used as a skin conditioning agent. Petroleum plastics act as surfactants (wetting agents and solvents). Other functions include fragrancing ingredient, humectant, and viscosity decreasing agent.
Those with sensitive skin may find that butylene glycol causes a rash to form on their skin, or their skin becomes sensitive, inflamed, or turns red. It can also irritate the nasal passages and the eyes if your body reacts negatively to its presence.
Feeding studies in which 1,3-butylene glycol replaced carbohydrate as an energy source found central nervous system effects in rats, dogs and calves. 1,3-Butanediol decreased glucose and increased beta-hydroxybutyrate in lactating goats fed 1,3-butanediol in their diets.1,3-Butylene glycol was fetotoxic when fed to rats during pregnancy, and a ...
Home » Beauty » 10 Products To Avoid In Your Hair and Skin Regimen Posted By Brenda Barrett | 4 comments There are several additives, preservatives and otherwise questionable products that are banned from hair and skin products in some countries because they contain chemicals that when tested have proven to be carcinogens, allergens, or just ...
Propylene glycol contains 3 carbon atoms, while butylene glycol is a little larger and contains 4 carbon atoms. In glycols, the alcohol groups are attached to different carbons. Confusingly, the names "propylene glycol" and "butylene glycol" can refer to several slightly different substances, since there are a few choices of carbon atoms for the OH groups to be attached to.
Butylene Glycol. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permits Butylene Glycol to be used as a synthetic flavoring and adjuvant for direct addition to food. Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol and Dipropylene Glycol are allowed to be used as indirect food additives. For example, Butylene Glcyol may be used in polymeric coatings in contact with food,...
Butylene Glycol. By thinning the cream formula, butylene glycol can make the product more enjoyable to use and reduce the amount of time needed for a thick coat of cream to dissipate. After all, it may be great to use a thick cream before bed time, but if you're in a rush, a thin cream is a more convenient option.
Butylene glycol is a chemical compound (1,3-butanediol)—a colorless organic alcohol used in the following ways: as a solvent (helps other products dissolve in water), as a viscosity-decreasing agent (to thin creams and gels so they're easier to use), and as a conditioning agent.
Butylene Glycol is used for its humectant properties, as a conditioning agent, and to help other ingredients dissolve into water. Butylene glycol is found in "food flavoring agents" as well as regular cosmetics product. Its EWG.org score is 0-1 (depending on concentration) which means "Low Hazard" . Just to contrast, Cetearyl alcohol is in BTMS-25.
Butylene Glycol is the most gentle of all the glycols and many studies have shown it to be safe even when eaten. When it is placed on the skin or ingested it is quickly broken down into hydroxybutyric acid which is a naturally occurring compound in the body and in other organics.
Final Report on the Safety Assessment of Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ethoxydiglycol, and Dipropylene Glycol Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ethoxydiglycol, and Dipropylene Glycol are viscous liquids used in the cosmetic industry as humectants, emulsifiers, plasti- cizers, and solvents.
