Organic Vegetable Glycerin Summary
Here in the Pronounce Skincare shop we use vegetable glycerin in our Aftershave Spray and Bug Spray. For you at home, we have loads of great recipes on our blog, Scratch Mommy, that utilize vegetable glycerin.
Vegetable glycerin is created by adding alkalis to fats and oils (basically…alkalis are a base that can easily dissolve in water). Adding vegetable glycerine helps ingredients to better “stick” to surfaces longer than they would if they were in water alone (because it’s acting as a carrier oil, or base).
In lieu of alcoholic herbal tinctures that can be drying for some, you can make glycerin-based tinctures, too. We have a post on the blog that teaches you the how’s, why’s, and we even give you several recipes to get started! Below is a recipe for moisturized, clean hands that utilizes vegetable glycerin.
