Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether

Definition

Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether is a solubilizer that ensures even distribution of the ingredients throughout a product, to help it work better. No matter how much you shake or blend a formula that combines oil and water, over time the oils will separate from the rest of the liquid - just like salad dressing. A solubilizer like mineral spirits helps keep our product formula well mixed. It can also be used as a wetting agent to help a formula spread across a surface, making shining more efficient.
