Non-Palm Glycerine, also known as non-palm-derived glycerol, is a versatile, colorless, odorless, and viscous liquid that is widely used in various industries.

Derived from sources other than palm oil, such as vegetable oils (e.g., soybean, rapeseed) non-palm glycerine is a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to palm-based glycerine, aligning with efforts to reduce the environmental impact associated with palm oil production.

Key Properties:

Purity: Typically available in high purity, often 99% or greater.

Solubility: Highly soluble in water and alcohol, making it an excellent solvent.

Hygroscopicity: Capable of absorbing moisture from the air, which makes it useful in humectant applications.

Viscosity: Thick, syrup-like consistency that enhances texture and stability in formulations.

Non-toxicity: Safe for use in food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical applications.

Applications:

Cosmetics and Personal Care:

Moisturizers and Lotions: Acts as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin.

Soaps and Cleansers: Contributes to the moisturizing properties and improves the texture.

Food and Beverages:

Sweeteners: Used as a sugar substitute in low-calorie foods.

Preservatives: Helps in maintaining moisture and extending shelf life.

Texturizers: Improves the texture and consistency of processed foods.

Pharmaceuticals:

Medicinal Syrups: Acts as a sweetener and thickening agent.

Capsules and Tablets: Used as a plasticizer in gelatin capsules.

Topical Ointments: Provides a smooth, spreadable consistency.

Industrial Applications:

Antifreeze: Used in non-toxic antifreeze formulations.

Plastics and Polymers: Functions as a plasticizer to enhance flexibility.

Textiles: Employed in fabric softeners and textile processing.

Environmental and Ethical Considerations:

Non-palm glycerine is favored for its reduced environmental footprint compared to palm-derived glycerine. The production of non-palm glycerine supports sustainable agriculture practices and helps mitigate deforestation and biodiversity loss associated with palm oil plantations. Additionally, sourcing glycerine from alternative feedstocks can align with ethical consumer preferences and corporate social responsibility initiatives.

Overall, non-palm glycerine is a highly valued ingredient across multiple sectors due to its multifunctional properties, safety, and sustainability credentials.

Our Glycerine is suitable for cosmetic use and is BP standard.  Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, colourless, and odourless liquid with a sweet taste and has the consistency of a thick syrup (or liquid honey). Glycerine is soluble in both water and alcohol.

It is also used in the manufacture of elastic glues, lead oxide cements, to keep fabrics pliable, to preserve printing on cotton & for printing rollers.
