What is Glycerine?

Glycerine, or alternatively Glycerin or Glycerol, is a multi-functional product, originated from the production of biodiesel by transesterification of oils and fats with subsequent refining of the glycerine. It is non-toxic, water-soluble, colorless, odorless, clear and viscous liquid with a high boiling point. Has good antimicrobial and antiviral properties and is hygroscopic in nature.
