Pure vegetable glycerine, made from 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 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 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.

It is always a pleasure to order from Essentially Natural. Service is excellent and snappy. Website is very user friendly and not many websites offer the inside info, knowledge, tips, recipes etc that you guys give out freely.
Thank you!

Great product

I have recently lost alot of weight and my face has been hit the hardest, very dry and more visible wrinkles.
I have combined the vegetable glycerin with the sweet almond oil and the difference is noticeable. Thanks for having such a wonder range available

Best Solution to my toddler's problematic skin

I am so very pleased with your product. My sweet daughter was born with a very rare skin condition. Essentially Natural made it possible for me to take very good care of her skin as nothing else works as good as vegetable glycerine. I have tried everything, nothing works so well with the SBR Repair cream, and on top of that, I cannot find vegetable glycerine anywhere else.. And I cannot go one day without it! You will definitely hear from me again.. And further into the future. Thanks Essentially Natural

Vege glycerine

I've been struggling to find this product until I started shopping with you guys and for the formulas I create, its necessary to have the vegetable form of glycerine and not the popular one which pulls moisture out of the skin.
