Glycerine Palm Free
Also known as glycerol, glycerine is a natural humectant that is commonly used in skincare products due to its ability to attract and retain moisture. When applied to the skin, glycerine can help to hydrate and plump the skin, which can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Glycerine can also help to strengthen the skin barrier, which can protect the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV rays. Additionally, glycerine can help to soothe and calm the skin, making it a good choice for those with sensitive or irritated skin. It can also help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, leaving it looking smoother, softer, and more radiant. Overall, glycerine can be a beneficial ingredient in skincare products for those looking to improve the hydration and overall health of their skin.

Important Note: We’ve had quite a few e-mails from customers querying apparent short measures when they receive their glycerine from us. Glycerine is heavier than water, so whereas 1kg water will occupy exactly 1 litre, because of glycerines greater density, it will occupy a lower volume – about 800ml. For techies – the relative density of glycerine to water is 1.26 meaning it is about 1/4 heavier than water.
