WHAT IS IT
Glycerin or glycerol is a natural compound that is derived from vegetable oils or animal fats.
It functions as a humectant and an occlusive which means it attracts and locks the moisture from the deeper skin layers and the surrounding air just like a sponge. This helps to keep the skin feeling smoother and softer and soften the dead skin for easy fall off.
