Zemea® Propanediol, a Natural Ingredient for Hair Care Products


Zemea® propanediol is ideally suited for many different hair care products including shampoos, conditioners, styling products and hair colorants. It can be used as a humectant and natural solvent and has the potential to increase preservative efficacy. Formulators who want to improve the sensory and safety profile of their products should consider using Zemea® propanediol.

We have conducted several technical studies using Zemea® propanediol in various hair care applications. Benefits include its excellent moisturization, lack of skin irritation, improved sensory properties in application (including wet and dry stages in shampoos) and its potential for boosting zinc pyrithione efficacy in dandruff shampoos. Studies conducted in Japan also indicate that consumers prefer Zemea® propanediol to other glycols in hair care applications.

Zemea® propanediol can help you create the natural, innovative formulations your consumers are looking for.
