Glycerin: Derived from animal fat ;( Product sits on top and does not absorb deep.
Overall I prefer vegetable glycerine to moisturize over makeup. vegetable glycerine is a strong humectant, meaning it us able to retain moisture. Take a look at some of your beauty products such as lotions and hair conditioners, I guarantee you will find glycerin as one of the ingredients. Remember that ingredients are also listed from the highest concentration to the least concentration. Notice how water (aqua) is usually first? However, I prefer vegetable glycerin because it absorbs deep and I like knowing I don’t have animal fat on my face..lol 😉
