Our pure vegetable Glycerin Organic is USP Grade, Kosher, and GMO and allergen-free. Glycerin is colourless and odourless, having a slight viscosity and a sweet taste when used in lip balms. It is a viscous humectant liquid used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. It is invaluable as a natural-source ingredient with emollient properties that can soften and soothe the skin. Because it is a humectant, it attracts moisture in the air to the skin. It is soluble in both water and alcohol; this versatility is a major factor in its popularity in manufacturing.
Application: Glycerin is humectant and lubricating, ideal for topical applications where moisture retention is important. It also gives creams and lotions a smoother texture.
Country Of Origin: India
Important Note: Vegetable Glycerin is the result of a sophisticated extraction method called hydrolysis, with the final product being referred to as vegetable glycerin. This system is based on the fats and oils of a raw product that are then split into crude glycerol fats, under the combined action of water, temperature and pressure. These temperatures can exceed 400° degrees and the material is usually kept under pressure for 20-30 minutes. What is actually occurring is a sort of counter-flow where the water absorbs glycerol from the fatty-acid phase of the oil production. After this phase this glycerol is isolated and further distilled to result in a standard 99%-pure glycerin product.
Shelf Life: Glycerin Organic has a shelf-life of 1 - 2 years.
