Shelf Life: Vegetable Glycerine has a shelf-life of 1 -2 years.
Our Vegetable Glycerine is a Kosher product derived from palm, and it is GMO-free and allergen-free. Glycerine is the result of a sophisticated extraction method called hydrolysis. This system is based on the fats and oils of a raw product (typically palm or coconut) that are then split into crude glycerol fats, under the combined action of water, temperature and pressure. These temperatures can exceed 400° degrees and the material is usually kept under pressure for 20-30 minutes. What is actually occurring is a sort of counter-flow where the water absorbs glycerol from the fatty acid phase of the oil production. After this phase this glycerol is isolated and further distilled to give buyers a standard 99% Glycerine product (our New Directions Variety is minimum 99.7%).
Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, colorless, and odorless viscous liquid. It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. Because it is soluble in both, water and alcohol, its versatility is a major benefactor in its purported growth and popularity within the manufacturing sector. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient-like properties which can smooth and soften the skin and it assists the skin surface to retain moisture. This helps to explain why it is one of the most popular cosmetic additives used today.

By:Mikaela, Kitchener, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2016
Rating: LIQUID SOAP: Behaves amazingly- helps speed up the process.
BATH BOMBS: Adding glycerine and waiting a bit more time can allow you to make a firm bath bomb that FLOATS! (i use approximately 20g/500gCitric Acid/1kg bakingsoda/50gkanolin)
SOLID BUBBLE BATH: Perfect ingredient!
No scent. No discoloration. Lasts forever.

Rating: I could not agree more with the previous reviewers: this is an excellent addition to just about everything.
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: This was my first purchase from NDA and I ordered a lot as I was using it for psoriasis straight up. It does work for that but it's rather slow compared to other options. I mean I was puting it for hours almost every day and for months on end. Because it's a humectant , it did suck the air from some of my furniture and even walls that were nearby. I am not using it now that much and I am not sure how to use the 2 gallong that I have left now?
By:Vladimir, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Apr-2011
Rating: Not knowing much about glycerin, I can't make a judgment about this product's quality, but it seems to be working well for me. Also, great value, but I guess that's because it's produced in Malaysia. Having known that before hand, maybe I would have looked for something produced closer to home.
Rating: I use a lot of glycerin in my liquid soap. This one is 1st quality and the price is very good ! Thank you !
J'utilise beaucoup de glycérine végétale dans mes savons liquides. Ce produit est clair, sans problèmes et le prix est excellent. Merci !

Rating: This is my first experience with glyerine, and I have to say I love it! I'm very impressed with it's humectant properties and how easily it mixes with other ingredients. Tastes sweet too...good for viscuous lip products! Can't wait to experiment more with it.

I use it in all my soaps.

By:Lucie, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2008
Rating: Do you know how difficult it is to find quality vegetable glycerin at a reasonable price. I recently priced 150 ml. for $7.99 and I was astounded! I am relieved to find your web site and am now in the process of prder it in bulk, amazingly, I can't find it in British Columbia.

Rating: I like that it is guaranteed vegetable glycerin and I also like the price. I am certainly not a glycerin-connesieur (since I can't even spell that!) but I do know that this glycerin works great for all my products, and that's all that matters!
By:Stephanie, Cochrane, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2007

Excellent thickener and sweetener!
Wish it were packaged in a glass bottle, however.
