Two different types of glycerin
There are two different types of glycerine − vegetable and petrochemical glycerine. Nowadays, the petrochemical production process is only seldom used. Vegetable oils, so-called triglycerides form the basis for the production of glycerine. Vegetable glycerin is the variant made from plant oils. It is said to have been accidentally discovered more than two centuries ago by heating a mixture of olive oil and lead monoxide.
Glycerin for beauty
You could make a homemade facial cleanser by mixing half a cup of water with one and a half tablespoons each of glycerin and cornflour in an ovenproof glass jar. Bring the mixture to a boil till the mixture looks clear. After the mixture has cooled, apply a little on moist skin and wash out with warm water.
Glycerin is gentler and more moisturizing than any chemical-based lip balms. Mix glycerin with shea butter, cocoa butter or coconut oil. Apply it on your lips after cleansing it. Leave it overnight.
Making a mask with aloe vera and glycerin will hydrate and nourish the scalp and can help alleviate dandruff.
You can make a glycerin hair spray by combining:
1. 1/4 cup glycerin.
2. 1/4 cup distilled water.
3. 1/4 cup rosewater.
4. Two to three drops essential oil, like peppermint oil or rosemary oil (optional)
Glycerin in foods
Precooked pasta, rolled oats, breakfast cereals, rice or tapioca pudding, breading or batters, precooked rice products and baked goods are all potential sources of glycerin.
Glycerin for medicine
Glycerol is a naturally occurring chemical. People use it as a medicine. Some uses and dosage forms have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Glycerol is taken by mouth for weight loss, improving exercise performance, helping the body replace water lost during diarrhea and vomiting, and reducing pressure inside the eye in people with glaucoma. Athletes also use glycerol to keep from becoming dehydrated.
Healthcare providers sometimes give glycerol intravenously (by IV) to reduce pressure inside the brain in various conditions including stroke, meningitis, encephalitis, Reye’s syndrome, pseudotumor cerebri, central nervous system (CNS) trauma, and CNS tumors; for reducing brain volume for neurosurgical procedures; and for treating fainting on standing due to poor blood flow to the brain (postural syncope).
Some people apply glycerol to the skin as a moisturizer.
Eye doctors sometimes put a solution that contains glycerol in the eye to reduce fluid in the cornea before an eye exam.
Rectally, glycerol is used as a laxative.
