Vegetable glycerin is a natural humectant. It draws moisture from the surroundings, making it an excellent moisturizing agent for homemade skincare products to keep your skin radiant and hydrant.
It is non-comedogenic, so it does not block your pores. This only adds to why it’s a first choice in beauty products. It also has natural oil regulating properties that help your skin maintain a balance.
Glycerol is highly soluble in water and alcohol, making it easy to work with. It mixes well with homemade beauty products. With a specific gravity of 1.26, it sinks to the bottom of water and alcohol-based products but due to its high solubility, mild agitation sees it forming an aqueous solution.
Its emollient properties make it very popular in soap making, forming moisture enriched soaps for softer and more hydrated skins. It holds in moisture by forming a protective layer over your scalp or skin.
