What is glycerin?
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is a natural substance made from organic or animal fats. It’s a clear, odorless, thick liquid with a sweet taste.
Glycerin is a humectant, a type of moisturizing agent that carries water from deeper layers of your skin and the air into the outer layer of your skin.
Many moisturizers and soaps include glycerin. Because it is a humectant, glycerin is a popular ingredient in lotions and soaps. A humectant is a compound that draws water from the skin’s second layer and distributes it to the top layer. Humectants extract moisture from the air when the humidity is high. As a result, glycerin hydrates the skin, aids in the removal of dead skin cells, and provides a smooth, young glow.
How does it work?
Our Pure Glycerin is beneficial to all skin types, but it is incredibly useful to dry skin. The loss of water in the skin’s top layer is what promotes dry skin. Emollients/moisturizers act by building an oily layer on the surface of the skin that holds moisture.
- Glycerin draws water into the skin’s outer layer when used regularly.
- It comprises urea, alpha-hydroxy acids like lactic/citric/glycolic acid, and allantoin, which soften the substance (keratin) that keeps the top layer of skin cells together.
- It aids in the removal of dead skin cells, enables the skin to retain more water, and makes the skin feel smoother and softer.
- This moisturizer is used to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and also minor skin irritations (e.g., diaper rash, skin burns from radiation therapy).
Benefits of Chiltan Pure Glycerin
Anti – ageing
Adding moisture to the skin will help it look younger and more vibrant. Glycerin helps to minimize the appearance of those signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles by bringing your skin’s natural moisture to the surface.
Some acne cleansers and moisturizers contain harsh substances that are harmful to the skin. Inflammation and irritation caused by aggressive skin care products can intensify acne in certain people. Glycerin, on the other hand, can be utilized to improve the appearance of your skin without the negative side effects associated with stronger products.
Glycerin is also oil-free and non-comedogenic, that means it will not clog your pores. Glycerin for oily skin may be the ideal remedy for clogged pores and breakouts.
Reduce fine lines & wrinkles
Glycerine seals in moisture and provides your skin a youthful, healthy sheen. Glycerine helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and keeps skin supple and smooth by absorbing moisture to the top layer of skin.
Gentle cleansers and moisturizers are vital for maintaining skin comfort and health, especially for treating acne. Exfoliators are frequently recommended for acne-prone people who want to get rid of dead skin cells. Scrubs with roughness and abrasion can eliminate dead skin cells and leave skin feeling smooth, but they can be too harsh for acne-prone skin, causing irritation and redness where a breakout already exists.
Glycerine is a gentle exfoliant, cleanser, and moisturizer which does not irritate the skin.
Glycerin can help hydrate skin that is dry, damaged, or cracked. Glycerin can aid with eczema and psoriasis, and also sores caused damaged skin.
Glycerin acts like a sponge, absorbing additional moisture to itself and delaying the loss of moisture from the skin, keeping the skin hydrated and moist even in the winter.
Humidity levels outside reduce in the winter, and the cold air promotes moisture in your skin to evaporate rapidly. As a result, the dry, cracked, and flaky skin that comes with winter can be a problem. When skin deteriorates, it becomes more prone to wounds and infection. Glycerin-based moisturizers lock moisture into your skin, so they’re especially good for preventing dry areas like your hands, feet, elbows, knees, and other body parts. Glycerin can also protect skin from the environment, such as wind and dry indoor air.
