Ingredient details
Our capryly glycol is a skin and hair conditioning agent that we use in combination with the preservative phenoxyethanol. A glycol is an organic molecule with two Hydroxy (OH) groups. The term 'caprylyl' is used to denote an organic molecule with 8 carbons. Reacting these two substances together produces caprylyl glycol.
