What Is Organic Glycerine?
Glycerine is one of the most versatile and safest chemicals available. It is a colorless, odorless and viscous polyol compound made from plant oils. This nontoxic, non-volatile compound has a slightly sweet taste.
The uses of organic glycerine extend to many products in the food, personal care and pharmaceutical industries. Pick up any cosmetic, OTC medicine or personal care product, and you will likely find glycerine as an ingredient.
What Is Organic Glycerine Used For?
Today, we see organic glycerine as a huge player in skin care. Glycerine is a humectant, a common moisturizing agent. By forming hydrogen bonds with water molecules in the epidermis, the lower layers of the skin, moisture moves up to hydrate cells on the top layer. Glycerine exhibits the same moisturizing properties as aloe vera, which reduces the skin's flaky or inflamed appearance. It may also be manufactured in ear drops and eye moisturizers.
Its syrupy consistency and ability to hold several times its weight in water make glycerine a common topical ingredient in hydrating and hygienic products such as:
Skin cleansers for acne.
Facial creams and masks.
Hair conditioners and anti-frizz products.
Beyond hydrating and hygienic products, the average consumer also ingests products with glycerine in the form of cough syrups and lozenges. This substance can also help retain moisture in processed food or serve as an artificial sweetener.
Glycerine is also used in numerous industrial applications including, lube and grease production, textile processing and polyurethane manufacture.
