Vegetable Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is a clear, odorless, and viscous liquid derived from vegetable oils. It is a natural and versatile ingredient commonly used in the cosmetics industry as a moisturizer, emollient, and humectant.

As a moisturizer, Vegetable Glycerin helps to hydrate and soften the skin, making it look and feel smoother and more supple. It is also an effective emollient, which means that it helps to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by filling in the gaps between skin cells.

Additionally, Vegetable Glycerin is a powerful humectant, meaning it can draw moisture from the air and hold it in the skin. This makes it an excellent ingredient for products that aim to hydrate the skin, such as creams, lotions, and serums.

Overall, Vegetable Glycerin is a versatile and natural ingredient that can provide numerous benefits to the skin. Whether used in a moisturizer, lotion, or other cosmetic product, it can help to keep the skin soft, smooth, and hydrated.
