Is Glycerin Good?

When the skin needs moisture, health and skincare therapists will often times reach for glycerin, but why?

Glycerin has been used in the health and skincare industry since its conception, due to its superior hydrating qualities, among other qualities.

What is Glycerin?

Glycerin is a thick, transparent liquid which is derived from the fat of plants and animals or is manufactured.

As a beauty therapist, glycerin will hydrate and moisturize the skin by acting as a humectant (drawing moisture from the air)

Benefits of Glycerin:

  • Hydrating
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Softens
  • Smoothing
  • Calming
  • Forms a protective skin barrier.

As a health and skin care professional, you will be able to formulate your own treatment plan during your treatment and find the most appropriate stage to incorporate glycerin into your treatment.
