COSMETICS + AEROSOLS | ACETONE
Acetone (alternatively known as Dimethylketone, Dimethylketal or 2-Propanone) is a clear, colorless, liquid chemical with the formula (CH₃)₂CO. It is a flammable, low toxic, water-miscible compound with a variety of everyday uses in industry, the laboratory, pharmaceuticals and the home.
Its primary use is as a precursor to other chemicals like methyl methacrylate, used in the ever-growing plastics and PVC industries. The pharmaceutical industry uses acetone as a denaturant (to produce denatured alcohol).
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.
