1,2,6-Hexanetriol is a trivalent alcohol with two primary and one secondary hydroxyl groups. It has many similarities to glycerin, but it is used as a substitute for glycerin due to its superior properties such as higher heat stability and lower hygroscopicity.

It is a colorless, odorless, viscous, high boiling and hygroscopic liquid, miscible with water and polar organic solvents, but immiscible with nonpolar solvents such as benzene, ether or heptane.

It is used as a solvent, to increase the viscosity of liquid and semi-solid cosmetic and pharmaceutical preparations, due to its low toxicity and good compatibility, and as a humectant due to its hygroscopic properties.
