One of the most popular ingredients used in skin care, Glycerin is a naturally occurring substance found in both vegetable and animal fats. It is a brilliant humectant, which means it can draw water from the environment to the skin. This helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier and prevents dryness, which is why it is most commonly used in lotions and creams.
Glycerin is great for people who suffer with sensitive skin, dryness, mild psoriasis and wrinkles. It is very mild, so won’t irritate the skin and its moisture locking properties mean it keeps skin hydrated and looking smooth.
