Glycerin acts as a humectant, it attracts water and seals in moisture helping to keep the skin hydrated, smooth and soft. It can be used to hydrate oily skin without a greasy feel.
It cleanses, refreshes and cools skin helping to condition and nourish as well as improve the skin's structure. It strengthens the skin's barrier which protects skin against damaging external factors as well as preventing moisture loss. It helps to exfoliate dead, dull skin cells which removes impurities, smoothes dry skin and ensures the skin has an even tone.
These moisturising capabilities also have benefits for hair, Glycerin moisturises and soothes dry scalps helping to treat issues such as dandruff. It can also nourish and strengthen hair while helping to treat split ends. Glycerin conditions damaged and frizzy hair leaving it feeling moisturised and smooth.
