Vegetable glycerine oil has a very similar PH level to our skin, so it’s suitable for all skin types. It’s commonly used to hydrate, cleanse, and heal damaged skin.
Vegetable glycerine oil uses
Vegetable glycerine oil has a wide range of uses for our skin and is often found in toiletries and beauty products. When used regularly, it starts to fill lines and wrinkles, helping to achieve a smooth, younger-looking complexion. If you suffer from cracked skin during cold weather or summertime, moisturise with a few drops of vegetable glycerine as it nourishes and softens dry, damaged skin.
There’s a cooling property to vegetable glycerine, and that makes it a great natural solution for combatting skin irritation and minor burns. Apply gently with a cotton pad to calm sunburn, insect bites, rashes, and other skin ailments. Our vegetable glycerine oil is perfect for sensitive skin, so it can be used by everyone from infants to the elderly.
If you prefer a natural face cleanser as part of your skincare routine, add a few drops of vegetable glycerine to your reusable cosmetic pads and gently wipe across your face. You can even add a few drops to a homemade face wash or soap where vegetable glycerine will help to banish bacteria. Its lack of fragrance means you can blend it with a scented oil if you want to create beautiful smelling DIY cleansers.

Many aromatherapists keep a bottle of vegetable glycerine oil close by in case of a minor skin problem. This gentle oil soothes cuts, burns and other skin problems, helping to reduce inflammation and encourage speedy healing. The oil forms a protective barrier around the skin, helping to keep it safe from further damage.
