The use of glycerin in skincare products

Rachael Polowyj, Technical Product Manager at Azelis UK, was interviewed by Byrdie, an online magazine for all things beauty, on the use of glycerin in skincare products.

"Cosmetic chemists will use it (glycerin) in most formulations because of how effective it is in terms of moisturising." She adds that "it’s used a lot in pharmaceutical creams, promoted by doctors to treat extreme dryness and repair skin elasticity. It keeps your skin soft, supple and hydrated which is essential as we use harsh soapy products which strip away our natural oils."
