In make your own face care recipes glycerine is used to carry effective ingredients (such as aloe gel), into the skin where their beneficial effects can be utilised. It is very mild and will not irritate in any way.

Pure vegetable glycerine, made from certified sustainably sourced palm and palm kernel oil.

Our take on palm oil: we do actively try to avoid products that are produced from palm oil sources but sometimes it just isn't possible. Therefore at a minimum, any products containing palm oil must be from certified sustainably sourced palm oil. Sustainably sourced palm oil may still be a better option than other alternatives, which although won't carry the stigma that palm oil does, can still be farmed and produced unsustainably - in some cases in an even less sustainable manner than palm oil itself. The problem isn't palm oil, it is the way in which unethical producers farm it. The way we see it, supporting certified sustainably sourced farmers will help change the way this product is farmed, leading to better environmental policies, while still supporting the communities that depend on palm farming.

My hair feels soft and manageable thanks to few drops of glycerine in my hair food and shampoo.easy to comb my hair too.Am really pleased.


How do I dissolve glycerine in oil base products?

Hi, glycerine is water based, so it won't mix with oil without the addition of an emulsifier
