Glycerin Benefits & Products | SHEN®️
Since its discovery in the eighteenth century as a byproduct of soap, the syrupy, clear liquid known as Glycerin has been used in beauty products. Despite its long history (or more recently, those kid-friendly Glycerin soap craft kits), this simple but powerful moisturizer often goes unappreciated for the wonders it can do for skin.
On top of its ability to pull moisture from the air like a sponge, which prevents water loss that can make skin feel tight, Glycerin softens and helps ingredients like Ceramides and Fatty Acids work better. Hydrated, silky skin is naturally going to appear more youthful, but on top of that, it also binds to plumping collagen and stabilizes it while speeding up the skin’s healing process.
These protective and healing qualities make Glycerin suitable for sensitive skin and anyone else looking for a really effective moisturizer or hydrating product - something we all should be thinking about this time of the year. At SHEN we’ve got products for head to toe that use this powerhouse ingredient to soften, soothe and support the skin.
For The Face:
VENN’s Age-Response Compound K Hyaluronic Booster is the total anti-aging package - it can even work as an alternative to Vitamin C serums for those sensitive to them. It is packed with B Vitamins, Ginseng and five different weights of Hyaluronic Acid, which when combined with Glycerin does an even better job of boosting hydration.
Decree’s SOS Revitalising Sheet Mask is like a cool drink of water for dry, irritated skin. A favorite of our estheticians for its healing properties, this gel mask is so effective because of the gorgeous Rose Water, Glycerin, Aloe and Niacinamide it is soaked in.
This Blue Light Serum does what its name implies - protect from the damage caused by blue light from computers, devices, and the sun - but it also repairs past damage and reduces inflammation in the skin.
The glycerin in Environ’s Botanical Infused Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser tempers drying acne fighting ingredients, so that blemish prone skin feels comforted and moisturized while being treated.
Act + Acre’s Cold Processed Cleanse Shampoo is uniquely formulated so that ingredients like Moringa and Baobab Oils work at their most powerful alongside Glycerin to hydrate and balance the scalp. After one wash, you’ll be amazed at how fresh yet nourished your scalp feels.
Unlike other scrubs that can strip hair and turn it into a tangled mess, G.Tox Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub has a whipped texture studded with Himalayan Pink Salt that gently exfoliates and massages. Glycerin and uplifting plant oils make this weekly treatment spa-worthy.
Corpus Naturals Body Wash is far more indulgent than the soaps used three hundred years ago. With intoxicating rose, sandalwood and citrus scents, this gently hydrating cleanser will have you looking forward to every shower.
We don’t just age from the neck up, and thankfully Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Anti-Aging Body Cream makes using her skincare-level formulas all over a breeze. Skin feels supple, smooth and velvety soft after applying this silky cream.
Stop ingrown hairs before they start with Fur’s Ingrown Eliminator Serum, which calms irritation and smooths down bumps thanks to witch hazel, glycerin and aloe. Fur’s products are ideal for the pubic area but this can be used on the upper lip, underarm, or anywhere else you might find yourself getting pesky ingrown hairs.
