Default Re: Glycerine - safe?

Glycerine is greatly hygroscopic. that means it absorbs water and if undiluted glycerin is applied to the skin or body it sucks the moisture out of you. Causes burns essentially. But also understand that diluted it is used as a skin softener in lotions and other products.
