Other functions


PEG-6 is a polyethylene glycol that is highly water soluble. This ingredient is supplied as a clear, colorless liquid and serves as a moisturizing ingredient.

Specifically, PEG-6 acts as a humectant, which is a type of moisturizer that works by drawing water into the outer layers of the skin from the environment or from deeper layers of the skin.

PEG-6 also serves as an excellent solvent, due to its water-loving nature and its ability to dissolve a wide range of ingredients. In addition, this ingredient can also control viscosity by reducing the thickness of various skincare products.
