  • Soaps (solid and liquid) – quicker to lather, soft feel, moisturising. Soap bar will not last as long with glycerine added.
  • Moisturiser – add to creams, lotions and toners to help the epidermis retains moisture and give a smoothing, softening, emollient effect
  • Humectant – glycerine attracts water to itself. In low concentrations this has a moisturising effect on the skin. If used in high concentrations or arid climates, it may attract water out of the skin itself causing a drying effect.
