Monopropylene Glycol, also known as MPG, is a high-purity grade of monopropylene glycol, tested for compliance with the current United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopoeia (EP). MPG is clear, colourless and viscous liquid with almost no odour but a subtly sweet taste. It is soluble in water and has hygroscopic (moisture absorbent) properties. Used as a humectant in flavoring or seasoning concentrates, preservative and stabilizer in direct food applications such as baked or frozen goods, as a solvent in elixirs and pharmaceutical preparations containing water-soluble ingredients, and as a coupling agent in the formulation of sunscreen lotion, shampoos, shaving creams and other similar personal care products.
