Eco-Friendly and Sustainable

Zemea® Propanediol is a beacon of sustainability in the personal care sector. Its production from renewable corn glucose reduces reliance on non-renewable petroleum resources, aligning with the growing consumer demand for environmentally responsible products.

Enhanced Skin Moisturization

One of the multifunctional benefits of Zemea® Propanediol is its ability to act as an exceptional humectant. It provides superior short-term moisturization, helping to maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier and promoting a smooth, hydrated complexion.

Non-irritating and Skin Friendly

Unlike traditional glycols, Zemea® Propanediol is known for its lack of skin irritation or sensitization. This makes it an ideal ingredient for formulations designed for sensitive skin and baby care, ensuring that these products are gentle for daily use.

Preservative Efficacy:

Zemea® Propanediol has been shown to boost the efficacy of preservatives in personal care formulations. This can potentially reduce the quantity of preservatives needed, which is beneficial for both product stability and consumer safety.

Improved Sensory Experience:

The inclusion of Zemea® Propanediol in personal care products enhances the sensory characteristics, offering a pleasant application experience. It improves the feel during both the wet and dry stages, such as in shampoos, leaving the skin and hair feeling soft and non-greasy.


Its compatibility with a wide range of cosmetic ingredients makes Zemea® Propanediol a versatile addition to various product types. It contributes to the overall performance while balancing aesthetic appeal of personal care formulations.

In conclusion, Zemea® Propanediol is an innovation leader for the personal care industry. Its sustainability, skin-friendly performance and ability to enhance product efficacy and experience makes it a premier ingredient for future formulations.
