How is Glycerine 1.26 made?
Glycerin is a versatile product that can be produced in various ways. The most common production method is as a byproduct of soap production from fats and oils. In this process, the triglyceride in the oils and fats is hydrolyzed, resulting in glycerol as a byproduct. This glycerol is then purified.
The purification process of Glycerine 1.26 is crucial for the quality of the final product. During this process, impurities such as salts, water, alcohols, and organic contaminants are removed to obtain a product of high purity.
Glycerin in various industries
Glycerine 1.26 possesses several properties that make it useful in different applications.
Glycerin is a moisturizing agent, which makes the skin supple and soft. Its high molecular weight allows it to absorb up to 20% water without drying out. As a result, Glycerine 1.26 is often used in skincare products such as creams, lotions, and soaps. Due to its moisturizing properties, Glycerine 1.26 is also suitable for treating dry, flaky skin.
In addition to its application in the cosmetics industry, Glycerine 1.26 is widely used as a binder, stabilizer, and solvent in the pharmaceutical industry. Glycerol dissolves well in water and alcohol, making it suitable for various applications in the pharmaceutical sector. Glycerin is also used to increase the viscosity of medications.
Furthermore, Glycerine 1.26 is used as a sweetener in the food industry. It has approximately 60% of the sweetness of sugar and is often used as a sugar substitute in food products such as candies, pastries, and soft drinks. The advantage of glycerol as a sweetener is that it contains fewer calories than sugar and is also less harmful to teeth.
Lastly, Glycerine 1.26 is also used in the animal feed industry as a feed ingredient. The substance has an EU catalog number of 13.8.2 and is recognized as a GMP+ product with code 13.060. Glycerol serves as a moisturizer, energy-providing function, and helps maintain nutritional quality in animal feed.
