Glycerol Overview

Glycerol Glycerol, also known as glycerin or glycerine, is a colorless and odorless liquid that is widely used in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. It is a sugar alcohol and is also naturally occurring in the body. Glycerol is primarily used as a humectant in commercial products, which helps substances to retain moisture. It is also commonly used in food products as a sweetener and a thickening agent, and is also an ingredient in many cosmetics and personal care products, such as soaps and lotions, to help keep skin hydrated. Glycerol has a variety of medicinal uses, including as a laxative. Additionally, it is purported to help improve athletic performance by improving endurance and delaying the onset of fatigue. Glycerol can be used as a drug masking agent and is therefore banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
