Moisturizing properties for silky smooth skin
Isopentyldiol (3-methyl-1,3-butandiol) is colorless and odorless. Moreover, it can be combined with many substances, so it is ideal as an emulsifier and emollient in skin-care and sun-care products — and it does not leave white residues. IPD acts as an immediate moisturizer, so personal care products containing IPD make our skin feel silky smooth. IPD also ensures lasting gloss in decorative cosmetics such as lipstick and eye shadow.
Hair-care products for color retention and to restore damaged hair
Hair-care products with IPD provide lasting strength, including restoring damaged hair. In addition, they improve the color retention of dyed hair. Isopentyldiol enhances the tolerability of products because it has a very good safety profile and bacteriostatic properties. It is also used to enhance the skin-care properties of hand sanitizers and make-up removers.
Use isopentyldiol from Kuraray to make sure your cosmetics and personal care products feel pleasant on the skin as well as having excellent properties and optimum gloss.
