About Ethylhexylglycerin

Ethylhexylglycerin inhibits the growth and multiplication of odour causing bacteria, works to improve the efficacy of preservatives and acts as an antimicrobial stabilizer in combination with other ingredients.

Wherever you see Phenoxyethanol, you will almost always see Ethylhexylglycerin. Ethylhexylglycerin acts as a suspending agent, supporting Phenoxyethanol in the preservation of cosmetic processes. The EWG gives it a safety score of 1, meaning it is very safe, with little to no irritation to the skin.

Common Concerns

This ingredient is deemed safe for use in personal care products, but may cause irritation in some individuals. However, irritation usually only occurs in higher concentration, well above what is used in Nature’s Aid products.
