aminomethyl propanol

AKA AMP. An alcohol made from nitrogen compounds; mixes with water. Soluble in alcohol and used as an emulsifying ingredient for cosmetic creams and lotions, deodorants, shampoos, after-shave lotions, moisturizers, cleansing products, and in hair sprays. Used in medicines that reduce body water. Prolonged skin exposure may cause irritation due to alkalinity, but in most commercial products the alkalinity is neutralized. It is used in cosmetics up to 10 percent. The available test data do not exceed 1 percent. Therefore, the CIR Expert Panel says that concentrations not exceeding 1 percent are safe for use in cosmetics.
