Ethoxydiglycol in skin care:  solvent, co-solvent, carrier

Ethyxydiglycol also known as diethylene glycol monethyl ether, is a cosmetic grade solvent. Ethoxydiglycol is particularly appropriate for skin care products where it acts as an excellent solvent and carrier. Its solubility in ethanol, propylene glycol, vegetable oils, water, and butylene glycol makes it a valuable solvent or co-solvent which can be used in hydrophilic or lipophilic phases.

Polysorbate 80 is a safe, food grade, non-ionic emulsifier. It can be used with a co-emulsifier, such as Lecithin to cover a wide range of oil in water, and water in oil emulsion systems. Individually, it is an excellent solubilizer of essential oils, wetting agent, viscosity modifier, stabilizer and dispersing agent.
