Isoprene glycol is a unique cosmetics base ingredient produced by Kuraray. In addition to superior moisture retention and antibacterial properties, isoprene glycol is recognized for its good balance, including its extremely low odor and its compatibility with various types of ingredients. It is widely used in the cosmetics and personal care fields, including hair care and skin care products. For example, it is used in conditioners because it helps repair damaged hair cuticles. Subject to the same Japanese standards as those for quasi-drug ingredients, isoprene glycol has also been highly rated for its safety.
