You probably don’t know it, but if your beauty products make your skin soft and moisturized, it is partly thanks to glycerin. Come and discover this essential ingredient, with amazing actions and benefits!
What is glycerin?
The discovery of glycerin (or glycerol of its chemical name) dates back to the end of the 19th century. It is a colourless and odourless liquid with a viscous texture. It results from a process of saponification, and is obtained by the synthesis of animal or vegetable fat, such as Coconut Oil or Olive Oil.
Glycerin is widely used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors. Indeed, due to its wonderful virtues, it is present in all kinds of products: for the hair, the body, the face… Adapted to all skin types, it meets multiple needs!
What are its benefits?
Its main asset? Its solubility in water. Glycerin is a perfect humectant, which attracts water and can retain several times its weight.
At the same time, it reinforces the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis and thus allows cosmetic care products to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin. It helps to maintain its hydration. If you have dehydrated skin, know that it is your best ally!
