Glycerine is a colourless viscous liquid, is used in natural skin care as a humectant, thickener, and helps bind ingredients in lotions and creams.  Our gylcerine is palm oil free so that you can avoid palm and not contribute to virgin rainforest destruction. Suits all skin types. Packaged in a 90g reusable amber glass bottle.

Properties

Water soluble. Colourless, sweet viscous liquid.  

Applications

  • Acts as a humectant (moisture locking) which moisturises the skin by drawing moisture from the air into the skin's outer layer and to prevent water loss from the product as well as forms a protective layer to help prevent moisture loss
  • 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
  • Healing and soothing for dry and irritated skin

Use

  • Creams, lotions, body butters
  • Hair care
  • Face and body masks
 
Origin - Germany

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’.
