Glycerin

Function
Origin
The most popular moisturizing ingredient in the world. It is a powerful humectant – cheap yet very effective. Glycerin also has soothing and anti-irritant properties and is considered to be very safe for use.

Function
Origin
A humectant synthetically derived from glucose. It takes on the form of a clear, syrupy liquid.
