Applications: Polyethylene glycol is a polymer which is hydrolyzed by ethylene oxide. It has no toxicity and irritation. It is widely used in various pharmaceutical preparations. The toxicity of low molecular weight polyethylene glycol is relatively large. In general, the toxicity of diols is very low. Local application of polyethylene glycol, especially mucous membrane administration, can cause irritant pain. In topical lotion, this product can increase the flexibility of the skin, and has a similar moisturizing effect with glycerin. Large doses of polyethylene glycol can cause diarrhea. In injection, the maximum concentration of polyethylene glycol 300 is about 30% (V/V), and the concentration is greater than 40% (V/V).
