Ethylhexylglycerin was introduced into the personal care market by schülke as sensiva SC 50 and is a product with outstanding quality and comprehensive safety data. The stabilisation of ethylhexylglycerin in sensiva SC 50guarantees the high purity is maintained for the entire shelf-life of the material. This stabilisation system has been patented by schülke. Unstabilised ethylhexylglycerin can form unidentified impurities with unknown toxicological profiles during storage. To maintain the reputation of integrity and safety of ethylhexylglycerin, no material of uncertain quality or stability should be used for the formulation of personal care products, particularly as it is most often used in leave-on cosmetics with extended skin contact.
