Commonly used as an ingredient in various organic skincare products, Vegetable Glycerine is a colorless and unscented liquid emollient and humectant derived from the oils of plants such as Coconut, Palm, or Soy. When formulating natural soaps, creams and lotions, you will see it called Vegetable Glycerol or simply Glycerol. When used with other natural oils and ingredients, it can seal in moisture on the top layer of our skin while the other oils work their way deep into our cells to provide long-lasting moisture.
Vegetable Glycerine cleanses the skin without clogging pores, and it facilitates the absorption of other beneficial active ingredients. The drawing of moisture into the skin serves to smooth the look of fine lines and cracks, help with the generation of new skin cells, even out the skin tone to lighten darker areas, and diminishes the appearance of unwanted spots and marks. It also helps to prevent dry, chaffed, chapped, cracked, flakey, or wind burned skin.
Used medicinally, Vegetable Glycerine’s cooling quality makes it a soothing salve for discomforts and conditions of the skin, such as cuts, burns, itching, hives, rashes, sores, eczema, psoriasis, and other ailments that are characterized by dryness, itchiness, or inflammation. Due to its ability to encourage normal skin cell maturation, Vegetable Glycerine is known to facilitate healing when applied to acne, scratches, blemishes, and wounds. It locks in moisture, creates a protective barrier on the skin against environmental contaminants and pollutants, and helps suppress the urge to scratch any irritation.
