Vegetable Glycerin

June 16, 2015

Vegetable glycerine in organic dog shampooGlycerine, derived from palm, coconut, corn, soy, or another vegetable is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with a very sweet taste.

Glycerine's consistency is that of a thick syrup that when applied to your skin feels soft and "slick".  

Glycerine is an incredibly versatile ingredient - used in cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, and other household products. 

Vegetable glycerin has emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin. Glycerine is very mild and excellent to use on the most sensitive of skin. It is also thought to be a humectant - meaning - it can attract moisture to your dog's skin and keep it locked in! 

All of our shampoo bases are glycerine soaps as they will keep your dog's skin feeling more hydrated for several hours after you use it.

Unfortunately, not all glycerine is the same. Some manufacturers use a petroleum derived glycerine as it is less expensive than the sustainable vegan alternative.
