Glucam™ P-20 Humectant

INCI Name: PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether

Personal Care Model S

Glucam™ P-20 humectant is one of the few naturally-derived cosmetic fluids that are miscible with water, alcohols, organic esters, and oils.

In any product, it delivers humectancy with a lubricious, emollient feel.

In alcohol based systems Glucam P-20 humectant reduces the stinging effect alcohol has on skin. Equally important in fragrance containing formulations, Glucam P-20 humectant acts as a fixative by subduing volatilization of the "high notes". The light color and low odor of Glucam P-20 humectant will not interfere with the mood the fragrance is trying to communicate.
