What is it?



Propylene glycol is a derivative of natural gas. It is commonly used in a variety of consumer products and food products, including deodorants, pharmaceuticals, moisturizing lotions, and fat-free ice cream and sour cream products.



What does it do?



Propylene glycol helps form the base for our deodorants. Sodium stearate (soap) is the ingredient that causes these products to gel or take on a form that is more viscous or solid. Once suspended in a gel, the other ingredients in these products can be properly applied in the manner consumers expect.

Why would you *want* to eat it?

Propylene glycol is a non-food.

Personally, I won't even use deodorant with p.g. in it.

actually it is used in some foods. I have no idea why anyone would want to eat it either.

In a word : NO



It is chemical-based boiled animal fat, and a carciginian, or whatever.

Proplyene glycol is not made from an animal! It's a chemical compound.



I think it's very weird that it passed the tests for food safety.



It's used in anti-freeze liquid for cars, and brake fluid.



It's sometimes found in food. If you don't want to eat it, avoid the additive called "E1520".
