Glycerin, liquid - This thick, clear fluid is used in many lotion recipes by Donna Maria and in transparent soapmaking. Glycerin is a humectant that draws moisture to the skin and is an excellent addition to any lotion recipe, generally in the water phase. Glycerin is also a great way to smoothly add tricky pigments to melt & pour soap. Watch this video for details.

I only use this glycerin for one thing: liquid soap and it works like a charm. As you probably know, you use potassium hydroxide (also called pot ash) to make liquid soap and it takes a long time to trace (often times 30 minutes). Using a glycerine base instead of a water base, the heated glycerin quickly dissolves the potassium hydroxide crystals and it comes to trace in mere seconds and is ready to start the long cook. The result is a smooth, clear, gentle liquid soap. I highly recommend it. I got the recipe and instructions from soaping101
I used this glycerin for the first time to make the watermelon soap from Soap Queen's "Juicy Watermelons Slurping up Summer" post. I was very happy to find that my soap indeed did not crack at all when I curved it to my mold! I was also able to mix my micas directly into the glycerin giving me plenty of time to work out the clumps of the colorant.
Thank you Bramble Berry!
Hi Bramble Berry, I will like to use this product in the rolled up soap, but I was just wondering if its natural?! I'm really looking forward to make rolled up soap with this product!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Nyana! Our Liquid Glycerin is natural and is derived from vegetables! I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I have used this in lotion in the past and it worked nicely. Now I mostly use it to mixy mica with before adding them to my CP and MP soaps. It works great and helps the color to blend in well without clumping or leaving spots.
Great product, would get 5 stars except it seems like they did not tighten the cap all the way and some spilled during transportation. Other then that great product!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Aliena! I'm so glad you love our Liquid Glycerin! Though, I'm sorry the cap wasn't screwed on tightly and you lost some of the product! I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
