About Glycerin

Glycirol is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is sweet-tasting and non-toxic. Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is a natural compound derived from vegetable oils or animal fats.

Glycerin is a humectant, a moisturising agent that traps moisture in the skin and keeps it hydrated. It is used as a moisturizer to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin. In food and beverages, glycerol serves as a humectant, solvent, and sweetener, and may help preserve foods. Glycerol is used in medical, pharmaceutical and personal care preparations, often as a means of improving smoothness, providing lubrication, and as a humectant.
