INCI Name: PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether
Glucam™ P-20 humectant is a naturally-derived, 100% active, propoxylated methyl glucose ether.
It is one of the few naturally-derived cosmetic fluids that are miscible with water, alcohols, organic esters, and oils.
In any product, it delivers humectancy with a lubricious, emollient feel.
In alcohol-based systems Glucam P-20 humectant reduces the stinging effect alcohol has on skin.
Equally important in fragrance containing formulations, it acts as a fixative by subduing volatilization of the "high notes".
The light color and low odor of Glucam P-20 humectant will not interfere with the mood the fragrance is trying to communicate.
It is recommended for use in hair care and skin care products.
