Product Description


The Propanediol (1,3 propanediol) that we use is 100% naturally derived, sourced from corn (Zea mays) and is made by the fermentation of corn sugar. This ingredient has approval from EcoCert™ (an international recognized natural and organic seal) and the Natural Product Association (US based natural personal care certification). We use it as a substitute for propylene glycol in our Pomade Base. Not only is it a better product for your hair, it carries none of the negative stigma recently associated with Glycol products. We work hard to make it easy for you to market and speak positively about our products. That means we take the time to find these exceptional ingredients and do extensive, real world testing to modify and improve our product.

  • Styling Products
  • Creams and lotions


Recommended usage levels: 0.5% up to 2.0%.

*Note: It is important to test in a small batch first as there is potential that the product forms small masses or clumps as it cools. It can also make the product gritty. This will not affect its anti-inflammatory activity but is irreversible and may make the product look less desirable. Good agitation is required to thoroughly mix into product. Addition of Allantoin at 0.5% or more above 50.0°C can cause recrystallization upon cooling into larger particles which are noticeable during product use. 


Essentials By Catalina is not responsible for product compatibility. We encourage everyone to sample prior to committing to larger quantities giving you a chance to test the product for product performance, compatibility and safety. Keep all product out of reach of children
