Glycerine  (Glycerol)  Vegetable derived BP/USP

 Glycerol is used in medical and pharmaceutical and personal care preparations mainly as a means of improving smoothness providing lubrication and as a humectant. It is found in   a wide variety of products from toothpaste, skin care products, shaving cream, hair care products and soaps.   When used for human consumption glycerol is classified by the U.S. FDA among the sugar alcohols as a caloric macronutrient.

Glycerol is also a component of glycerin soap where ssential oils are added for fragrance. This kind of soap is often used by people with sensitive, easily-irritated skin because it prevents skin dryness with its moisturising properties. It aids by drawing moisture up through skin layers and slows or prevents excessive drying and evaporation.   In foods and beverages glycerol serves as a humectant solvent and sweetener and may help preserve foods.
