Vegetable glycerine moisturises the skin and can help stop skin drying. It is an essential ingredient in skincare formulas from creams to toners

Vegetable Glycerine

Completely Vegetable derived (mainly extracted from coconut), Vegetable Glycerin can be found in various skincare products and is often used as an alternative to alcohol to extract botanicals. Glycerin is used in moisturisers to stop skin drying out and in the formulation of skin care products to deal with psoriasis, rashes, burns, bedsores and cuts.

Glycerin is an essential ingredient of any formulator and should be included in most water-based cosmetic formulations.

Create your own Toners

Glycerine is most effective used in floral waters (1 cap full per 100ml). Blend your floral waters together and then add a cap of Glycerine to enjoy a superior and more natural product to High Street toners at a fraction of the price.

Glycerines uses in skin and hair care

Facial Cleansers

Glycerine is commonly found in facial cleansers because its ability to bind moisture makes it a great choice for keeping skin hydrated while cleansing. Cleansers with glycerine are also gentle enough for even sensitive skin types since they don’t strip away natural oils like some soaps and cleansers do.

Moisturisers and Creams

Glycerine is also often used in moisturisers because its humectant properties help lock moisture into the skin and keep it from becoming dry or flaky. This makes it especially beneficial for those with dry or mature skin types who need extra hydration throughout the day.


Glycerine can even be found in sunscreen products! Its antimicrobial properties make it effective at protecting against sun damage by helping to prevent bacteria from forming on your skin after exposure to UV rays. Plus, its hydrating effects help keep your skin supple and soft even after hours spent outdoors.

Hair Care Products

Glycerin-based hair care products are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to draw moisture into hair strands and make them look shinier and feel softer without weighing them down with heavy oils or creams that can leave hair feeling greasy or weighed down over time.

As you can see, Glycerin has many uses when it comes to skincare! From facial cleansers to sunscreens and everything in between, this versatile ingredient provides many benefits that make it an essential part of any skincare maker. With its powerful hydrating effects and antimicrobial properties, incorporating glycerin-based products into your skincare products can make the difference your skincare creations require.

    Makes the difference in my Shower Gel

    Posted by Sheila on 25th Jan 2023

    The Shower gels I was making were coming out way too drying for the skin. I played with pH but it wasn't making it any better. Once I started adding Glycerine, everything changed. They turned into really nice Shower gels that I am proud of.
