About Hexylene Glycol

Hexylene glycol is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone that is a clear, colourless liquid with a characteristic odour. It is a low-evaporating solvent that is completely miscible with water. It is produced industrially from diacetone alcohol by hydrogenation.

Hexylene glycol is widely used in the coating industry as a component for lacquers, varnishes, printing inks and both oil and water-based paints. It is used in skincare and cosmetic products to help improve the texture and sensory feel of the formulation.
