What is Glycerin?
Glycerin is an ingredient that is added in skin care to its moisture-binding properties. The top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) likes glycerin as it has a good ability to spread on the skin and repair the top layer of skin. Glycerin has the property of reducing acute irritation, working to improve skin elasticity and helping the skin absorb other active ingredients that are added to the skin. The moisture barrier of the skin barrier is significantly improved by glycerin in skin care.
