It brings a soft and pleasant feel to skincare formulations. It offers long-lasting effect and helps to stabilize lipophilic ingredients like perfumes inside aqueous solutions.

It reduces the concentration of traditional preservatives by boosting their effects. Hexiol is suitable for skin- & hair care products, make-up formulations and toiletries.
