  • Propylene Glycol - a fragrance ingredient?

    Posted by jackleon80s on July 27, 2017 at 9:31 pm

    Propylene Glycol is listed as a fragrance ingredient on skindeep. Does this mean that a product containing this ingredient cannot label itself as “Free from fragrances” ?

    Complete nonsense. I am surprised that you even bothered to quote such a rubbish Web site

    Totally agree!

    You can still list your product free from fragrances if it contains propylene glycol. This is a humectant and solvent for a variety of materials.

    Skin Deep is not a reliable source of information, although propylene glycol is an ingredient used in fragrances…as a solvent.

    So a fragrance is exclusively a scent ingredient only, used to modify the smell of the final product?

    Fragrance is a blend of scent ingredients and solvents used to modify the odor of the final product or the surface that it is being put on.
