What is Isobutane Used For?
Isobutane acts as a foaming agent so it is commonly found in beauty products like hair mousse or shaving cream. This gas is also found in items like hair conditioners, makeup, and some cleaning products due to its solvent properties that make it a good cleanser. You'll also find it in a variety of aerosol spray items like hairspray or a variety of different home cleaning products. The gas degrades quickly once it's exposed to air or water. However, isobutane is a flammable gas so be sure you use items that contain it safely. When using aerosol products like hairspray, do so in a well-ventilated room.
