Default Just a quick question for those who know their ingredients

Just wondering if capryly glycol is one of those glycols that can actually be drying to skin/hair instead of helping it retain moisture? aAnyone know??? Thanks

This is what I found with a little research: "A humectant and skin conditioning agent that lends moisturization, emollience and wetting properties to many cosmetic solutions. It also function as a stabilizer and has been shown to increase the antimicrobial activity of other preservatives. In fact, it's often used in a preservative blend containing phenoxyethanol and chloroxylenol, named Optiphen. Because of its multi-functioning nature (moisturizer & anti-microbial), it's used in a plethora of personal care products such as facial moisturizer, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment, lip gloss, mascara, concealer, cleanser and foundation."
