Naturally Simple Vegetable Glycerin

Glycerin (sometimes known as glycerine) is a thick, clear, colorless, multi-use liquid with a natural, moderately sweet taste. Typically used as a humectant (an ingredient that keeps things moist — like cake!), glycerin can also be used as a thickener and an emulsifier.

Wildly’s glycerin is exceptionally clean and made from coconuts. It’s also a sustainable alternative to glycerin made from palm, which may hold deforestation and environmental concerns for some people. Wildly’s coconut glycerin is comprised of 99.7% fatty ester extracted from coconut oil and 0.3% water. Fatty esters — typically fatty acids combined with an alcohol such as glycerol — have a very low caloric content, making this glycerin great for a variety of recipes.

Vegetable glycerin is often used as a replacement for alcohol in tinctures as its hygroscopic properties (attracting and retaining water) allow for better absorption of other ingredients. It also works well as a massage oil due to its water-solubility (it washes right off!) or as a carrier oil in essential oil or other moisturizer-based skincare. Other carrier oils tend to dilute the potency of essential oils; all-natural food-grade glycerin, however, helps your skin to better absorb the moisturizing agents found in essential oils and aids in a healthy, natural glow.

How We Make Our Glycerin

Our premium plant-based glycerin is made from a combination of ultra-pure water, pressure, and high temperatures to extract fatty esters from coconut oil. While our glycerin cannot be considered a “raw” product, the high temperatures allow us to kill detrimental enzymes. We then complete each product by testing it for heavy metals, chlorides, sulfates, moisture, and other impurities that could compromise the integrity of the product.

Wildly’s vegetable glycerin arrives ready to use in 41 fluid-ounce glass bottles with plastic lids, one-gallon plastic jugs, and 5-gallon plastic pails with a pour spout.
