PPG is the acronym for "polypropylene glycol", the polymer of propylene glycol (1,2-propanediol), a dihydric alcohol. The number after "PPG" indicates the average number of propylene glycol molecular units, for "PPG-14" this is 14 propylene glycol molecular units.
"Palmeth-60" indicates a polyethylene glycol ether (PEG ether) of synthetic alcohols derived from palm oil. The number 60 indicates the average number of polyethylene molecules -CH2-CH2-O-. PPG-14 palmeth-60 alkyl dicarbamate is used in cosmetic formulations. The substance mixture acts as a viscosity regulator (increases or decreases the viscosity of cosmetic products).
