"Oh yeah just an F.Y.I did you know that propylene glycol (de-ice fluid) is a preservative in twinkees and other foods like that?"
True. Some might be surprised to know how many products they use everyday that have it. "It's stabilizer (in prepared fruits, vegetables and bakery goods) and a solvent in flavor solutions and extractions (in food additives, such as colors, antioxidants, enzymes and emulsifiers)...Propylene glycols are commonly used in many types of cosmetic formulations like-
Skin care (creams, moisturizers, cleansers, lotions, sun care products)
Deodorants and antiperspirants (roll on, stick and gel deodorants)
Hair care (shampoos, conditioners, styling gels, and coloring products)
Shaving products (creams, foams, gels, and after-shave lotions)
Bath and shower products
Perfumes and colognes
Baby care products (baby wipes)
Hand cleansing and disinfecting gels
Color cosmetics (blushes, eyeliner, lipsticks, eye shadow)
Dental care (mouth washes and toothpastes)
Who woulda thunk that, eh?
