Dipropylene Glycol LO+ (DPG LO+) is a high-purity product, designed for use in odor-sensitive applications such as fragrances and cosmetics. The material, a distilled product with purity greater than 99.5% as dipropylene glycol, is a liquid that is practically odorless, colorless, water-soluble and hygroscopic that is its advantage in perfumery oils. This grade of DPG was developed to meet the needs of manufacturers who require a consistent quality for their fragrances and personal care products.

DPG LO+ provides excellent co-solvency for water, oils and hydrocarbons, with minimal odor, low skin irritation potential, low toxicity and consistent isomer distribution, making it ideal for use in:

DPG – Dipropylene Glycol – How to make a perfume while adding DPG :

Please find below the standards formulas for several type of perfumes as EDP or EDT. Anytime you need to mix all ingredient and test them on sticks to see if the result is approved.

Note also : If you do not have fixative liquid then substitute it by fragrance oil as example 15% become 15% + 0.5% = 15.5 %. Apply also rules of long lasting process.

DPG is a cutting agent used to dilute fragrances and essential oils. DPG is most commonly used in making incense. DPG allows the fragrance to bind to the stick or cone and creates a slow burning incense. The ratio used in incense making is 2 parts DPG to 1 part fragrance or essential oil.

9 = Very Good Performance

8 = Good Performance

7 = Reasonable performance

6 = Fair performance

5 = Mediocre performance

4 = Slight stability problems

3 = Discoloration Problems

2 = Stability problems

1 = Major problems

0 = Not recommended for use

Important Notes:

End application data applies to experiments carried out by the authors or extrapolated from those experiments using computer algorithms. As application product formulations vary widely this information is only a general guide.
