Global Ethoxydiglycol Market: Overview
Ethoxydiglycol, also known as diethylene glycol monethyl ether, is a cosmetic grade solvent. It is soluble in water and oil. Ethoxydiglycol is primarily used to dissolve ingredients to decrease viscosity. This solvent is widely used for skin care product preparations where it acts as an excellent solvent and carrier. Ethoxydiglycol is an extensively used solvent or co-solvent, which can be used in hydrophilic or lipophilic phases due to its solubility in ethanol, propylene glycol, vegetable oils, water, and butylene glycol. It finds application in hair and skin care products, eye and facial makeup, fragrances, personal cleanliness products, and shaving products. Ethoxydiglycol ensures even distribution of ingredients in the product to help it provide better effect. A solubilizer such as ethoxydiglycol is used to keep the product formulation well mixed.
The ethoxydiglycol market is anticipated to expand at a considerable pace due to high growth rate of the cosmetics industry. Increase in awareness among consumers about personal hygiene and increase in per capita spending on personal care products are anticipated to boost demand for ethoxydiglycol during the forecast period. Rise in concern regarding chemicals used in the personal care industry is likely to hamper the ethoxydiglycol market.
