  • Uses of PG (Propylene Glycol)

    Have been searching around for some information on PG as I've been primarily using PG in my DIY stash. Here's some interesting information. See where PG (Propylene Glycol) is used in the industry:

    Propylene Glycol is used:

    As a solvent in many pharmaceuticals, including oral, injectable and topical formulations. Notably, diazepam, which is insoluble in water, uses propylene glycol as its solvent in its clinical, injectable form.
    As an emulsification agent in Angostura and orange bitters
    As a moisturizer in medicines, cosmetics, food, toothpaste, shampoo, mouth wash, hair care and tobacco products
    As a carrier in fragrance oils

    In hand sanitizers, antibacterial lotions, and saline solutions
    In smoke machines to make artificial smoke for use in fire-fighters’ training and theatrical productions.

    As a solvent for food colours and flavourings
