UL Prospector



Kuraray Europe GmbH makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Isopentyldiol is a fully water-soluble, colorless, odorless humectant liquid ingredient. It behaves as a hydrotrope and provides with emollience along with a dry, non-tacky skin feel. Its versatility has already allowed its use in numerous personal care products such as eye/face/body care, hair care (shampoos, masks) but also colour cosmetics (eye shadows, compact powders, lipsticks). Together with sorbitol it boosts short term skin moisturisation and helps to close cuticles of damaged hair, thus improving shine.
