Saskine™ 50 (INCI: ethylhexylglycerin) is a multifunctional cosmetic ingredient used in a broad range of cosmetic applications.
Saskine™ 50 improves the skin feel of cosmetic formulations and functions as emollient and mild humectant. The skin-feel of Saskine™ 50 can be compared to that of glycerin.
Saskine™ 50 is a very effective as an active component in deodorants due to its inhibiting effect on the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Saskine™ 50 enhances the antimicrobial efficacy of typically used preservatives like phenoxyethanol, isothiazolinones or parabens and by doing so enables lower concentrations of the cosmetic preservative in the formulation applied. It can be an important ingredient in clean, preservative-free formulations along with other multifunctional ingredients such as caprylyl glycol or 1,2-hexanediol.
EWG’s Skin Deep® gives ethylhexylglycerin a score of 2, near their best rating on a scale of 1-10, and Paula’s Choice gives a “Good” rating.
