Glycerin (also called glycerol) is a naturally occurring alcohol
compound and a component of many lipids. Glycerin may be of animal or
vegetable origin. This ingredient is listed in the PETA's Caring
Consumer guide as a byproduct of soap manufacture which typically uses
Glycerine is a natural by-product of
soap making. It also occurs naturally in nature. Glycerine is a clear,
odourless, viscous liquid, which dissolves completely in water. Its
main characteristic lies in the fact that it is a humectant and absorbs
water to its structure. This is a very important ingredient in all
cosmetic formulations as it helps not only retain water close to the
skin but also attracts it. In so doing, it softens, hydrates and
moisturises the skin.
In hair products, it encourages shine, conditions and contribute to the overall texture of the hair.
