Safety of a preservative system containing 1,2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol.


PMID 19514921

Abstract

To study the potential for delayed Type IV dermal sensitivity of a new preservative system containing 1,2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol, 200-subject repeat insult patch tests were performed with a 15% mixture of 1,2-hexanediol and caprylyl glycol (equal parts of the 2 ingredients) in carbomer gel and a cosmetic formulation at an actual use concentration. No delayed Type IV hypersensitivity reactions were observed.
