Glycerine as cosmetic ingredient (Glycerin)

Glycerin (also referred to as glycerol) is a skin-friendly humectant which attracts water to the skin as well as a binding ingredient that occurs naturally in vegetable, as well as animal lipids. We use glycerin from vegetable source.

glycerin glycerine

For cosmetic purposes it can either be produced artificially from propylene alcohol or naturally derived from vegetable oils (We obtain it from vegetable source).

It is a sweet, syrupy alcohol that has been used in cosmetics for hundreds of years as a solvent, plasticizer, humectant, emollient, and lubricant. Although still very often used, glycerin is being replaced more and more by its cheaper counterpart, sorbitol.

At one stage it was thought that glycerin could draw water out of the skin, instead of the other way round, but this idea has now been shown as unfounded.

What glycerin does do is help maintain the water balance in the intercellular matrix and in so doing it maintains the skin's homeostasis. It has also been suggested that glycerin found in this level helps other lipids to perform their work more effectively.
