Moisturizes the skin
Glycerin is a very effective moisturizer on the skin. It absorbs water from the air, reducing dry and dull spots on your skin. Your skin is immediately soft, supple and moisturized upon application. It adds moisture and health to your skin.

Smoothes the skin
As your skin ages, it looks dull and becomes susceptible to irritation, redness, and many other conditions, such as dry skin, as it loses its ability to retain moisture. With aging, your skin also hardens – but using glycerin regularly can fill in tiny cracks to smooth your skin and prevent other problems with dryness.

Maintains Water Balance
Humidifiers in glycerin draw water from the air and retain it on your skin. Glycerin minimizes water loss due to evaporation and keeps the skin's inter-water level in balance – so it moisturizes and nourishes the skin well.

Nourish the skin
Because of its skin nourishing properties, glycerin can be used every day. Its regular use helps keep your skin healthy, soft and fresh. It is especially great for helping fight colds during the winter months.
