The French cosmetic ingredients supplier Minasolve offers a sustainably produced version of the multi-functional ingredient "Pentylene Glycol". This ingredient is obtained by reacting furfural with hydrogen. Pentiol Green + is a colourless liquid with a faint or no odour, is free of genetically modified organisms. It is sustainably produced on a large scale from non-food vegetable raw materials. This new cost-effective version opens up new opportunities for applications in eco-certified biostimulants. The multifunctionality of Pentiol Green + includes antimicrobial protection of formulations, moisturization of the skin cuticle, solubilization and extraction of natural components. Green Pentylene Glycol also acts as an effective preservative booster in blends with antimicrobial agents Phenylpropanol, Benzoic Acid and Glyceryl Caprylate. Many different types of eco-certified biostimulants can therefore be effectively protected. Finally, the green version of Pentylene Glycol allows for decreasing the carbon footprint of biostimulant products without compromising on performance.
