What is Organic Vegetable Glycerin?

Scientific Name: USP Vegetable Glycerin

*Certified organically grown

Inesscents Organic Vegetable Glycerin is the ultimate humectant, attracting and sealing in moisture, while soothing irritated skin. Used as a key ingredient in many body care products, it is water soluble and provides added moisture for dry skin.

Vegetable glycerin is a clear, odorless liquid produced from plant oils and is extracted from organic, non-GMO soy through a process called hydrolysis. Inesscents organic glycerin is also *USP grade making it an excellent ingredient for the conscious do-it-yourselfer.

Glycerin draws moisture into the skin and then creates a protective layer to keep it in. This makes it an excellent source of overall skin hydration. Combining glycerin with other products (such as organic body oil) also allows healthy nutrients to be absorbed into the skin more easily.
