Applications

  • Helps to use less preservatives - part of the product's preservation strategy because free water in a product is more likely to support microbial growth
  • Most commonly used at 1-5% in skin cream emulsions

  • Hair care
  • Face and body masks

What is Vegetable Glycerine / Glycerin

Also known as Glycerin (US spelling) or Glycerol.  Glycerine is generally a by-product of another process such as soap-making, which separates the glycerin from the fatty acids in the whole oil.  It is also a by-product from bio-diesel production.  Due to its sweet taste and low toxicity, it is used widely for food production and pharmaceuticals, such as cough syrups and other medicines.  It is used in toothpaste because it is sweet but does not cause tooth decay, as an emollient and laxative, and for making explosives and antifreeze.

Origin of the name is from the French 'glycerin' and from the Greek glukeros ‘sweet’.
