What Is Propylene Glycol And Why You Should Avoid It.
Propylene Glycol. A cosmetic form of mineral oil found in automatic brake and hydraulic fluid and industrial antifreeze. In the skin and hair, propylene glycol works as a humescent, which causes retention of moisture content of skin or cosmetic products by preventing the escape of moisture or water. The Material Safety Data Sheet warns users to avoid skin contact with propylene glycol as this strong skin irritant can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
Toxic Ingredient Propylene Glycol I Butylene Glycol
Propylene Glycol is routinely used in many body care products. It is a highly toxic syntnesized petroleum derivative that is the primary constituent in radiator fruid/ anti-freeze in your car! It is technically classified as a carcinogen. It is a completely unnatural product that has no business being in any thing we put in or on our bodies, yet is allowed to be put in body care products because it is not “eaten”, but when you put things on your skin, they go immediately into the blood stream without being filtered by your normal detoxification systems, such as your liver. Propylene glycol is found in tooth pastes, skin creams, soaps, moisturizers, conditioners, baby wipes, cigarettes, pet foods, etc.
Propylene glycol is classified as a humectant by the body care products industry, but its technical classification is as a Coolant and de-icer, it is an “industrial antifreeze” and the major ingredient in radiator fluid, brake and hydraulic fluid. Tests show it can be a strong skin irritant. Propylene glycol accumulates in the heart, liver and kidneys, (causing abnormalities and damage) and weakens the immune system.
Propylene glycol can provoke acne eruptions and can cause contact dermatitis. It penetrates the skin and can weaken protein and cellular structure.
Propylene glycol is also commonly used to make extracts from herbs, and is strong enough to remove barnacles from boats!
The EPA considers Propylene glycol so toxic that it requires workers to wear protective gloves, clothing and goggles and to dispose of any PG solutions by burying them in the ground. Because Propylene glycol penetrates the skin so quickly, the EPA warns against skin contact to prevent consequences such as brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities. But there isn’t even a warning label on products such as stick deodorants, where the concentration is greater than in most industrial applications.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on Propylene Glycol warn users to avoid skin contact as it is systemic and can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.

Why has my babies nappy started to leak?
Pandas by Luvme Nappies are made to set design specifications. They have been tried and tested. Most parents find the fit and performance of Pandas by Luvme far better than any other biodegradable brand on the market for their babies.
However every baby is very much an individual so the occasional leakage problem can occur. The factors that can sometimes lead to leakage are the many movements your baby makes every day, the quality of the nappy you use, the nature of your baby’s bowel and bladder habits and the size of the nappy your baby is wearing.
We are constantly striving to improve our nappies and prevent leakage altogether.
The weight range on each of our packs is a guide only and quite often moving to the next size up will stop the leakage issues.
