Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is every cosmetic chemist’s fallback favorite ingredient; the all-around moisturizer and humectant, solubilizer, and skin and hair conditioner. It can be found in almost every type of cosmetic product sold today. In fact, we’re carrying our very own Certified Organic Glycerin in service of our markets.
What is Glycerin?
Glycerin is a polyol compound found in animal and plant sources and is typically synthesized in the liver. This compound typically occurs in triglycerides and is typically found in palms, soybeans, and animal tallow. Glycerin is an odorless, colorless, viscous non-toxic liquid.
Glycerin, apart from its versatile cosmetic use, is also popular in agriculture, food, medicine, and industrial manufacturing among others. This is largely thanks to its multiple properties like hygroscopy, polarity, solubility, and viscosity. Nonsynthetic glycerin may be produced through sugar fermentation (by yeast) or steam hydrolysis.
How is AllyOrganic Certified Organic Glycerin Different?
Up until recently the only commercial source of glycerin has been manufactured from synthetic precursors. Now, AllyOrganic has exclusively developed glycerin that not only is derived from natural precursors but is also certified organic. AllyOrganic Certified Organic Glycerin meets and exceeds the USP specifications for identification and assay, color, specific gravity, residue on ignition, water, total chloride, total sulfate, maximum chlorinated compounds level, fatty acids, and ester content, and arsenic content.
Every lot of AllyOrganics Certified Organic Glycerin consists of not less than 99.5% by weight of glycerin. There is almost no water present.
