  • Synthetic glycerin also known as  glycerine, glycerol, trihydroxy propane and propane-1,2,3-triol.
  • Basically glycerin is an organic alcohol with a sweet taste and slippery, viscous feel.
  • Glycerine is used in cosmetics, food, industry, medicine and pharmaceuticals.
  • Natural and synthetic glycerin's are chemically identical.
  • It has three hydroxyl groups that are responsible for its solubility in water and its hygroscopic nature.
  • Glycerin is produced as a by-product of Biodiesel, because of its purity is greatly improved and costs could be reduced.
