What is the difference between Glycerin and Vegetable Glycerin? Yes, by expressing Glycerin as Vegetable Glycerin we are representing that the Glycerin is 100% Vegetable based. If a product is referred to as Glycerin, it still may be 100% Vegetable based, but may be a blend of animal fat based glycerol or the seller may not know the glycerol source.
What is Vegetable Glycerin and why do they call it that? When Glycerin is referred to as Vegetable Glycerin it means the base glycerol used to make the glycerin is 100% Vegetable based. At ChemWorld.com we only purchase glycerol that is 100% soy based and America manufactured or import Glycerin USP.

What is Kosher Glycerin USP?Kosher is a certification by the orthodox church. In order for a product to be Kosher approved a company must pay a Rabii to view the entire process. This certificate must be renewed every 6 months. A kosher certificate can not be a third party certificate. In order for the product to be kosher certified a company should be able to provide a kosher letter with their respected company name on it. Asking for a Kosher certificate is a good way to verify your Glycerin USP was packaged in conformance to USP certification.
Is Glycerin USP safe for food use?Yes. Make sure to purchase USP certified glycerin. If you need a Kosher product make sure to get the Kosher certificate. There are legal limits on how much a person can consume. Please do your research prior to making products for human consumption. We do not provide advice on this for legal reasons.
What is Liquid Glycerin?All our Vegetable Glycerin is Liquid Glycerin. Liquid Glycerin may be added to soap in order to produce extra moisturizing properties and to ensure a clear finish. It is easily dissolved into water and alcohol, but does not mix well in oils. Liquid Glycerin has hygroscopic properties. This means it will easily absorb water from the surrounding air. If your container of glycerin is left open, it will absorb water and it will stabilize at 20% water and 80% glycerin. The taste would blister because glycerin is dehydrating. When water is used to dilute it, however, it makes the skin soft.
