Some newer, ‘greener’ brands are using a propylene glycol blend as a non-toxic alternative. Propylene glycol is an organic compound which basically serves to stabilize water (through evaporation and/or freezing point). It is recognized as safe by the FDA and is very commonly used in many food, beverage, and oral pharmaceutical products as a preservative.
