Our pure vegetable Glycerine Organic is USP Grade, Kosher, and GMO and allergen-free. Glycerine 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, shampoos, soaps, 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: Glycerine 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 Glycerine is the result of a sophisticated extraction method called hydrolysis, with the final product being referred to as vegetable glycerine. 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 glycerine product.
Please note that the drum tap will not work for Glycerine Organic Raw Materials as its consistency is too viscous.
Shelf Life: Glycerine Organic has a shelf-life of 1 - 2 years.
