Description

Around 13% of the world’s acetone production is used by the end user market as a solvent, providing the active ingredient in many cleaning products, nail polish removers and paint/resin/adhesive thinners and various degreasers. Other uses include its employ as an excipient or bulking agent in certain medications and it is also utilised by the high street beauty industry as a component in chemical peels – a process which strips the outer layers of skin away to freshen the appearance.
