Used as a humectant to help hydrate skin, as well as a solvent to help dissolve active ingredients into a formula.

At Dr. Whitney Bowe Beauty, we use propanediol that is sustainably derived from corn.

“Propanediol can help increase the absorption of other ingredients, allowing them to penetrate more deeply into the skin, and thus work more effectively. It also offers moisturizing properties that give a formula a dewy finish, without it feeling greasy. This is a great ingredient for sensitive skin, as it’s very well tolerated and unlikely to cause sensitivity or reactions.”
