Glycerin (Vegetable, Kosher)
Vegetable glycerin (Kosher), is a clear, odorless, and viscous liquid derived from plant oils. It serves as a versatile and beneficial ingredient in skincare due to its hydrating, moisturizing, and skin-conditioning properties.
One of the primary benefits of vegetable glycerin in nearly all of OM Botanical’s skincare products is its exceptional ability to attract and retain moisture. As a humectant, glycerin draws water from the environment and the deeper layers of the skin, helping to maintain optimal hydration levels. This makes it particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin, providing a burst of moisture that leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
Glycerin also forms a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and protecting the skin from environmental stressors. This barrier function enhances the skin’s natural defense mechanisms, promoting overall skin health and resilience.
Moreover, glycerin contributes to the smoothness and suppleness of the skin. Its emollient properties help to soften and condition the skin’s texture, making it an excellent addition to our skincare formulations designed to improve the overall feel and appearance of the skin.
Glycerin is non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores. This quality makes it suitable for individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin. By providing hydration without causing congestion, glycerin can be incorporated into a variety of almost any skincare product formulas without fear of exacerbating existing skin concerns.
In addition to its moisturizing properties, glycerin has a cooling effect on the skin, making it soothing and refreshing. This makes it a valuable ingredient in products designed to calm and alleviate skin irritation, redness, or inflammation.
Overall, vegetable glycerin is a versatile and skin-friendly ingredient that addresses multiple skincare needs. Its hydrating, moisturizing, barrier-enhancing, and soothing properties make it a valuable addition to a wide range of OM’s skincare formulations, contributing to healthier, more radiant, and well-hydrated skin. Whether used in cleansers, toners, moisturizers, or masks, glycerin remains a staple in OM Botanical’s skincare products for its ability to enhance and maintain skin hydration.
