The cornerstone of most moisturizing products, Glycerin is a humectant that’s present in all natural lipids (fats), whether animal or vegetable. It can be derived from natural sub- stances or synthetically manufactured, which is usually the case with modern-day skin- care products.
Glycerin, a substance found naturally in skin, replenishes and restores to establish nor- mal balance and hydration. Glycerin helps skin maintain a healthy look and feel; it main- tains the skin’s moisture level to defend against dryness.
