Unveiling Butylene Glycol
In Sepai Laboratories, one of our major concerns, besides efficacy is the safety of our customer’s skin.
Butylene glycol is an ingredient present in some of our formulas. We will try to illustrate with some facts that hopefully helps to clarify the information and boosts interest of research, which we really encourage in all our customers.
1. We don’t put it directly into our formulas any glycol form, but we get several active ingredients dispersed in butylene glycol. The efficacy of the active ingredients is necessary, so we cannot eliminate them a¡but we are encouraging them to change the base to other substances.
2. The glycols are a family of substances that exist in nature, not all of them are petrol derivates. Some of them are from natural origin, others are synthetic. Pls check the following link for further info about it:
3. The glycols may show a light irritating effect when used in high concetrations. We never exceed 0,5% in our products . We trust very much the EWG because they are a respectful NGO organisation, they value the risk of using substances in skincare, please take a look at their evaluation risk.
If you want to use a brand without butylene glycol, and that is more purist regarding naturalness, we invite you to try our natural brand APoEM www.apoem.eu, which perhaps is a concept you will feel more confortable with..
