Ingredient details
Also called glycerol or glycerine; this chemical is present in all natural lipids (fats). The glycerin we use is derived from natural (plant based) substances by hydrolysis of fats and by fermentation of sugars. Glycerin is naturally present in the skin and is used as a moisturiser as it draws moisture up through skin layers and slows or prevents excessive drying and evaporation. Its mild properties make it especially useful for people with skin irritations.
