Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with an incredibly sweet taste having the consistency of thick syrup. It can be obtained through a very complex and sophisticated method of extraction known as Hydrolysis, and the end product that we refer to as "Vegetable Glycerine" is usually the by-product of another oils production. It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. Because it is soluble in both, water and alcohol, its versatility is a major benefactor in its purported growth and popularity within the manufacturing sector. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin and it assists the outer epidermis is retaining moisture. This helps to explain why it is one of the most popular cosmetic additives used today.

Other uses of Glycerine include its solvency action which aids herbalists in extracting botanical properties from plant materials without the use of alcohol. This is especially helpful for those with alcohol sensitivities as most liquid herbal extracts contain alcohol. Vegetable Glycerine is a natural emollient that adds a cooling effect on the skin and has found itself in most skin care products and soaps. It is also very useful in making non-alcohol herbal extracts, which are called glycerites. This makes for a sweet alcohol free extract that can be easily administered to children and animals. Vegetable Glycerine has a rich oily texture, but is water soluble. Because it is derived entirely from vegetable oil, it is hypoallergenic and safe for all cosmetic purposes. The pure 100% USP grade Vegetable Glycerine is used in cosmetics and body care products to assist in retaining moisture and is helpful in pulling oxygen into the skin. It is a natural emollient that adds a cooling effect on the skin and has become a predominant ingredient in most skin care products and soaps.
