Learn the Art of Making Glycerites For Cosmetics

You don't have to be a pro to get professional results


Just  Imagine

if you could capture and retain the natural fragrance of fresh strawberries, delicate violet flowers, or crisp cucumber slices and add it to your handcrafted cosmetics. 

You can! It's easy to learn and doesn't even require pricey equipment!

Glycerine is ideal for extracting delicate scents from fresh flowers and fragrant herbs other solvents are unable to capture. And glycerine has so much more to offer!

Why Glycerine

Glycerine (glycerin / glycerol) is the second most common cosmetic ingredient in the world, and it's not without reason. Glycerine helps skin retain moisture, acts as a protectant in cosmetics with surfactants, and helps precious active ingredients reach the deeper layers of the skin. 

Glycerine can easily be transformed into a multifunctional skincare ingredient – a glycerite. Glycerites retain the original properties of glycerine along with the extracted components of the infused material.   

A handcrafted glycerite adds an extra dimension to your cosmetics.
