1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is primarily utilized as a moisturizer in cosmetics and has great anti-bacterial results. It can be made use of in the production of numerous lotions, lotions and tooth pastes. 1,3-Butanediol is additionally the raw product of polyester material and alkyd resin. Its numerous monocarboxylic acid monoesters are excellent plasticizers for PVC resin and plastics; it is integrated with phthalic anhydride, maleic anhydride and various other monoesters. The body can be made into unsaturated polyester resin. Because of the antibacterial effect of 1,3-butanediol, it is additionally used as an anti-bacterial agent in dairy products and meat products. The poisoning of 1,3-butanediol to advanced animals is extremely reduced, which amounts the toxicity of glycerol and lower than 1,4-butanediol. The 50% dangerous dosage for rats is 22.8 ~ 29.5 g · kg-1, and for mice The average deadly dosage is 23.4 g · kg-1.

Effects of 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL on Skin

1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is a shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair and products in low-humidity locations.

Emollients have the impact of softening and softening the skin. Normal polyol creams have the function of emollient; additionally, emollient does not necessarily have the effect of hydrating. Mineral oil-based oil-in-water lotion/cream [( consists of.

5% 1,3-butanediol, glycerin or propylene glycol) and (10% white wax oil)] allow testers take a look at the skin feeling and efficacy after cleansing. Examination end results disclose that 1,3-butanediol has the sticking to benefits contrasted to glycerin and propylene glycol:.

1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is less oily than glycerin and propylene glycol.

Much less sticky than glycerin.

1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is more conveniently soaked up by the skin than glycerin.

1,3-Butanediol has a lot less film-forming homes than glycerol and propylene glycol.

1,3-Butanediol gives a smoother skin feeling than glycerin.

The sensitization and potential irritation of aesthetic basic materials to the skin is an important selection requirement for formulators. Research study until now exposes that 1,3-butanediol is considerably much less probably to be annoying and animating to the skin than propylene glycol.

1,3-Butanediol is much more oil-soluble than glycerin and propylene glycol, yet is still miscible with water. 1,3-Butanediol is made use of to liquify energised ingredients in lotions, creams and lotions. 1,3-Butanediol has wonderful solvent properties, so it can be contributed to products such as face laundry, make-up remover and hair shade. In scent applications, it can be made use of as a flavor solubilizer and fixative.

Generally, 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is even more bothersome and stimulating to the skin than propylene glycol (PG), has much better moisturizing structures than propylene glycol and glycerin, and can Improves skin and boosts skin really feel. Considering that butylene glycol operates as a humectant, emollient, solvent, and scent fixative, it can be used in the adhering to type of individual treatment products:.

Hydrating cream, moisturizing lotion, moisturizer;.

Significance, cream, aftershave, makeup eliminator;.

Makeup things such as mascara, eye liner, and guide;.

Hair shampoo and conditioner (particularly suitable for damaged and completely dry hair);.

Sunshine defense items, anti-aging and anti-wrinkle therapy items.

1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL Applications

1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL has really reduced toxicity to sophisticated animals. In the field of cosmetics, 1,3-BG has long been made use of by formulators as a high-end moisturizer as a result of its transparency, anemic, and very light preference. It can also be made use of as a high-end cream. Emollients, solvents, fragrance cosolvents, and so on. When applied to cosmetics, it is required to use 1,3-BG without odor.

Patent CN201710894221.1 reveals an approach for extracting antioxidant elements from camellia oleifera seed bark making use of 1,3-butanediol as a solvent. 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL is commonly made use of as a moisturizer in cosmetics. Making use of 1,3-butanediol straight as a solvent to remove antioxidant parts from Camellia oleifera seed bark for use in the manufacture of face masks and other cosmetics has numerous considerable advantages. The technical bottom lines of this invention are: initially, crush and sieve the tea seed skin, first extract it with n-hexane to get rid of the oily compounds in the tea seed skin; then utilize butylene glycol as the solvent, stir and remove, and essence the fluid in a butterfly kind Centrifugal separation eliminates huge bit speeds up, and afterwards passes through ceramic membrane layer splitting up devices to remove macromolecular healthy proteins and polysaccharides. The filtrate is the active ingredient of tea seed peel and can be directly used for addition to cosmetics and skin care products. The essence obtained by this method has solid antioxidant ability, high antioxidant purity, low energy intake, and the item is not infected by microorganisms.

Preparation Method of 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL

(1) Prins condensation reaction: Use propylene and formaldehyde aqueous option as resources, regulate the reaction temperature at 20 to 200 ° C, and the response stress at 0 to 10MPa. With the repaired bed reactor An outfitted with an acidic solid driver, the reaction creates 1,3- Butanediol, tetrahydropyran-4-ol and 4-methyl-1,3-dioxane; the focus of the reactant formaldehyde liquid service is 5 to 70%; the molar feed ratio of the reactants propylene and formaldehyde is 20:1 ~ 1:20; the formaldehyde feed area speed per unit volume of the driver defined in the response is: 0.1 ~ 1000ml · min-1 · LCat.-1; the acidic strong driver defined in the response is a non-excessive component oxide or mixed One or a number of blends of oxides, zeolite molecular filters, heteropolyacids, cation exchange resins, etc( 2) Intermediate item separation: The response combination is unwinded and after that distilled to divide the unreacted propylene and formaldehyde and come back reactor A to proceed the response.
( 3) Hydrolysis reaction: Mix tetrahydropyran-4-ol and 4-methyl-1,3-dioxane obtained after separation with methanol, control the reaction temperature level at 20 to 200 ° C, and get in the acidic Hydrolysis response is executed in the fixed bed activator B of the stimulant to obtain 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL and methylal; the amount of tetrahydropyran-4-ol and 4-methyl-1,3-dioxane and methanol The molar ratio is: 1:1 ~ 1:30; the feed room rate each volume of the driver in the reaction is: 0.1 ~ 2000ml · min-1 · LCat.-1; the acidic solid catalyst in the reaction is a non-transition element oxide Or several mixes of blended oxides, zeolite molecular sieves, heteropolyacids, cation exchange resins, etc( 4) Item distillation: The above reaction mixture is corrected to obtain methylal, excess methanol and 1,3-BUTYLENE GLYCOL products respectively, of which the excess methanol is returned to reactor B to continue the response.
