The Power of Glycerin

The Power of Glycerin

Discover the Power of Glycerin
Glycerin is a natural gel-like substance made from plant oils (typically soybean, palm, or coconut). It’s found in many beauty products. In fact, almost every product In the Kyshen Natural line contains glycerin. Why is it so popular? Glad you asked. 

Glycerin offers an incredible number of benefits. When used in skincare products, glycerin prevents dryness, improves skin tone and texture, hydrates, moisturizes, soothes, and heals. It also helps reduce the oils in oily skin and forms a protective barrier on the top layer of your skin to lock moisture in and keep harmful pollutants out.  Let’s look at the amazing benefits of glycerin in our Kyshen Natural products:

  • It hydrates.
    Glycerin is a humectant. A humectant is a substance that actually attracts water. Glycerin captures water from the second layer of the skin and pulls it up to the top layer. In high humidity, glycerin will also pull moisture directly from the air. Pretty impressive.
    It then forms a barrier on the skin that keeps moisture locked in, providing instant hydration. Your skin craves water and glycerin quenches that thirst, hydrating your skin, and making it smooth and supple.
  • It balances.
    In addition to locking all that moisture in your skin, glycerin also works to ensure that no water evaporates, maintaining the skin’s water balance.
  • It moisturizes.
    Glycerin acts as an emollient, providing instant moisture that helps eliminate dry, dull patches and leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and healthier. While it’s pulling moisture to the skin’s surface, it plumps up wrinkles and fine lines (bonus, right?), making your skin look younger and more radiant. Face creams, body lotions, and eye creams almost always contain glycerin.
  • It softens.
    As we age, our skin can become dry and dull, mainly due to its inability to retain moisture. Dry skin can be flaky and rough. Skin irritation or skin conditions can occur. Using products that contain glycerin, such as Kyshen Natural Body Lotion, can smooth the skin, soften lines, and combat dryness when used on a regular basis.
  • It nourishes.
    Taking care of your skin and keeping it moisturized is one thing. Knowing that your moisturizer is also packed with nourishing properties is even better! Regular use of glycerin products will ensure your skin is properly nourished, soft, and healthy within the skin’s layers as well as on the surface.
  • It has healing properties.
    Glycerin works to improve your skin, feeding the cells and helping them grow. Healthy cells help heal the skin. Glycerin is known as a natural medicine that works to ease and repair extremely dry skin and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
  • It can reduce acne
    Glycerin is oil-free and non-comedogenic (it won't clog your pores). This is beneficial to problem skin because clogged pores can lead to breakouts. Glycerin won’t cause inflammation or irritation. If your skin is normal, oily, dry, or sensitive, glycerin is gentle enough to use every day and will not strip your skin of natural oils.
