The professional choice of fragrance fixative and carrier for perfumes
Dipropylene glycol with low odour is a high quality grade and with it's low toxicity and solvent properties makes it an ideal additive for perfumes and skin and hair care products.
Thanks to its solvent and carrier properties, Dipropylene glycol is used in cosmetics, especially in perfumes. It sticks to fragrance molecule and helps them to disperse slowly, changing the strength of a perfume. More or less dipropylene glycol in a formula means differents notes strength.
Dipropylene glycol also helps different essential oils, absolutes and fragrance materials to bind together, giving a great control of viscosity.
- Reed Diffusers – 30% fragrance oil, 60-65% DPG, 5-10% Perfumers Alcohol
Please refer to the IFRA certificate of the fragrance to ensure the correct ratio is not exceeded. These are our suggestions, we strongly suggest adjusting from here depending on desired strength, as always your own testing is required.
Blend the fragrance oil with the DPG until clear. Stir solution slowly and thoroughly until solution has cleared. Seal container and allow to stand for 2 to 3 days before using.
