WHAT IS IT? Vegetable Glycerine is a non-toxic, transparent and unscented gel liquid that is derived from the oils of plants. It is fantastic for the skin. Our Glycerin is derived from Organic Flax Seeds and is the highest purity you can find. Because of its amazing skin, hair and body health benefits, it can be applied directly to the skin as a moisturizer and is also used in many cosmetics and DIY beauty projects.
HOW CAN IT HELP? Our Vegetable Glycerin attracts and locks moisture into the skin, thereby softening and smoothing the look of fine lines or minuscule cracks on the skin and soothing the complexion. It also facilitates the regeneration of new cells, which evens out skin tones and helps maintain the proper elasticity and diminish the appearance of unwanted spots and marks.
CAN IT HURT MY SKIN? Our Vegetable Glycerine moisturizes the skin without clogging pores and eliminates congestion so you won’t break out using it. Also, its own pH level closely matches that of the skin, which makes it gentle enough to be used by those with sensitive skin and even in baby skincare. As with anything though, always test it on a small area first.
WHAT ELSE? Vegetable Glycerine protects the skin and scalp from destructive bacteria, regulates oil production, nourishes unhealthy and dull hair and contributes sun protective properties to guard against the harmful effects of overexposure to UV radiation and environmental contaminants. Lastly, it facilitates the absorption of beneficial active ingredients in other natural products, such as essential oils, so can be combined to make a truly potent cosmetic weapon.
