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.

Great product

I'm deeply grateful to Essentially Natural for their exceptional service, the warm customer support, and the thoughtful gift that came with my purchase. Your efforts are sincerely appreciated. The glycerine has worked wonders for my extremely dry skin, freeing me from the incessant itching. Additionally, I've found it to be an excellent moisturizer for my hair and a great addition to my DIYs.

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
