Glycerine/Glycerin/Glycerol is derived from coconut flesh. Glycerine is a humectant- this means it draws water to itself. We use it to hydrate your skin and hair without oil or waxes. Our glycerine is palm free and comes from sustainably managed coconuts, a renewable resource. Glycerine can come from many sources, petroleum and palm being common, which of course, we don't use!
