What is Glycerin?

A humectant naturally found in the skin that helps it maintain a soft, moisturised, healthy look. Used topically in combination with other emollients and antioxidants, it has been shown to be very effective at restoring the skin.

How does Glycerin work?

Glycerine in skincare has numerous benefits, but it primarily serves to hydrate skin and helps it hold on to moisture. Glycerine’s benefits also include:

• Helping to shield skin from environmental sources of irritation.

• Working with emollients and oils to make dry skin feel amazingly soft and supple.

• Fortifying and strengthening the skin’s precious moisture barrier.

• Enhancing the penetration of other ingredients into the skin’s uppermost layers.

• Improving skin’s resiliency and youthful look.

Who should use Glycerin?

Glycerin can be used on all types of skin including oily skin. Research has shown that glycerine mimics what’s known as the skin’s natural moisturising factor (NMF), which is why it’s compatible with all skin types, of all ages.

How is Glycerin used?

The glycerin ingredient can be found in a variety of skincare formulations, including body washes, lotions, oils and creams.

Can Glycerin be used on the body?

Glycerin is relevant for body and face use due to its long history of safe use in the skin care routine, and its non-allergenic properties. It helps to keep your skin beautifully soft and supple, whilst providing increased hydration to the skin.
