Low Odour - High Purity Grade
Dipropylene glycol with low odour is a high quality grade and with it's low toxicity and solvent properties makes it an ideal additive for perfumes and skin and hair care products. It is also an ingredient in commercial fogging fluids which are used in entertainment industry smoke and haze machines.
Uses for Dipropylene glycol (DPG):
Perfumery Uses :
- Making Reed Diffuser oils (see below for details)
- Very good fragrance diluent and quencher.
- Pot pourri, perfumes, room sprays, body sprays, oil burners
- Ultrasonic reed diffuser oils
Other effective uses of DPG are:
- Hydraulic brake fluid formulations
- Cutting oils
- Textile lubricants
- Printing inks
- Industrial soaps
- Solvent for agrichemicals eg. insecticides.
How to make your own DIFFUSER OIL:
- 20-30% Fragrance oil
- 50-70% DiPropylene glycol (DPG) or MonoPropylene glycol (MPG)
- 10-25% Perfumers alcohol or Formulators
To make diffuser oil, blend the fragrance oil with the DPG or MPG until clear. Add Perfumers alcohol to reduce viscosity to desired thickness.
