AT A GLANCE
A common solvent that increases spreadability, reduces viscosity, and helps distribute actives.
Hexylene glycol is used widely across skincare, hair care, and makeup to enhance spreadability, thin out overly thick formulas, and ensure actives are fully dissolved and dispersed. It also has some antimicrobial effect and can enhance the efficacy of certain preservatives.
