Glycerin is a colourless and highly hygroscopic substance of thick syrup consistency. It is one of the oldest skin moistening substances. Its properties can be attributed to a very small particle which has an ability to penetrate the skin very deeply and to maintain its proper moistening on both a surface of the skin and in the horny layer.
Glycerin has perfect alleviating properties, it ideally moistens dry, improperly cornifying and cracking-prone epidermis, leaving a feeling of smoothness and softness. Too high concentration of glycerin in a cosmetic leaves a feeling of viscosity on the skin.
