As an emollient, lubricant and humectant, our Vegetable Glycerin is well suited for a wide range of moisturization applications that include skin, hair, nail and lip care. It helps support normal skin elasticity and is well suited for inclusion in formulations intended for mature skin. It is non-irritating, soothing and is heralded for its ability to moisturize dry and cracked skin. Vegetable Glycerin is noncomedogenic and is also ideally suited for inclusion in formulations intended for oily and acne-prone skin. It is a remarkable humectant for use in hair care products intended to restore health to dry, brittle and lifeless hair.

Comments: Best quality, the only thing is shipping cost is very high.

FNWL Response: Hi Ashwini, we respect your concerns with shipping costs and hope you understand that shipping rates imposed by UPS and USPS are outside of our control. Your order was rather heavy. The rates imposed by shippers are based on the weight of each package and the destination.
