Highly concentrated and pure vegetable glycerin, obtained by the hydrolysis of palm and coconut oil. This extremely viscous, transparent and sweet liquid is a common ingredient in many cosmetic products, herbal glycerites and for use in electric cigarettes.
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is an organic compound, produced by the hydrolysis of palm and coconut oil. It is widely used in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry for two main reasons: it has a sweet taste, but has fewer calories than sugar, and it is hygroscopic, that is, it absorbs moisture from the air.
Due to its hygroscopic properties, it is used in many moisturizing skin products, as it seems to help relieve dry skin problems by drawing water up from the lower layers. It is also a component of vegetable soap, which is often used by people with sensitive skin. Lotions containing this compound are also popular.
99% Vegetable glycerin conforms to the European Pharmacopoeia and can be used for cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. It can also be used in food products as sweetener, preservative or thickening agent. Also known as E422.
