Ingredient for Fragrances and Cosmetics

Isoprene Glycol

Isoprene glycol, a unique cosmetic ingredient produced by Kuraray, features superior moisture retention and antibacterial properties. Isoprene glycol is used in a wide variety of cosmetics and toiletries, including hair and skin care products.

In addition to superior moisture retention and antibacterial properties, isoprene glycol has been highly rated as a well-balanced base ingredient in cosmetics due to its extremely low odor and its compatibility with various types of ingredients. Examples of the use of isoprene glycol include conditioners that repair damaged hair cuticles.

Subject to the same Japanese standards as those for quasi-drug ingredients, isoprene glycol has also been highly rated in terms of its safety levels.
