Propellants for Personal Care Products

Beauty Products and More

The range of applications for propellants in personal care aerosol products is extensive—and growing. Some of these applications include:

  • Haircare
  • Shaving creams
  • Deodorants and antiperspirants
  • Infant care products
  • Body sprays

Due to regulatory requirements regarding volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions and ozone depletion potential (ODP), manufacturers have moved away from using chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in their formulations.

The Chemours Company offers a range of propellant products, specifically HP DME and HP 152a propellants, that are low-VOC, zero-ODP, and safe for people. These high-quality propellants are widely used in today's non-CFC personal care aerosol formulations.
