Vegetable glycerine, powerful plant-based moisture
Widely used as a humectant, glycerine has long made a name for itself in the cosmetics industry. For the love of nature, the glycerine in our products is plant-based. Well tolerated by the skin and highly effective, this all-rounder is an integral part of numerous lavera products.
Glycerine is an important component of the skin
Did you know? Glycerine is found in the protective acid mantle of the skin. It is part of its Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF), which helps it retain essential moisture. It also helps maintain the barrier function of the skin, protecting it from drying and irritation.
Our vegetable glycerine provides valuable moisture to the skin and is an excellent humectant. Used as a carefully dosed ingredient in our special skin care formulas, glycerine can also help improve the skin's elasticity. It occurs in all natural fats and oils as a fatty acid ester (triglyceride).
Used in our decorative natural cosmetics, vegetable glycerine provides valuable moisture to the skin. But that’s not all: In combination with other ingredients, vegetable glycerine can help set your make-up and extend its staying power. It also gives concealer, foundation and powder a naturally fresh finish.
