A consistent, reliable, commercial supply of organic glycerin will enable you to transition entire lines of products to organic, allowing you to effectively tap into this rapid growth area.

Its Not Conventional!

Almost all glycerin in the market today is conventionally produced as an incidental byproduct of an industrial process like biodiesel manufacturing.  It is frequently made from contaminated sources, like used cooking oils or cheap vegetable oils.  As a result, much of it is not USP grade or even FCC grade glycerin, and may contain a small percentage of impurities.  It is also often brokered on the open market with an unknown source.

Pure Organics Glycerin™ is your best bet for a known source that is regularly inspected for quality and purity.

Glycerin, also called glycerol or glycerine,  is a sugar alcohol compound (C3H5(OH)3), comprising 3 carbons and 3 hydrophilic hydroxyl groups.  It is a colorless, odorless liquid that is sweet tasting and very low in toxicity.  As a food, it is categorized as a carbohydrate.  In cosmetics, personal care and pharma, it is valued for its wide range of humectant and moisturizing properties, as well as bacteriostatic and preservative properties.

Glycerin is used in an amazing number of applications:  As a humectant in lotions, creams and sunscreens; non-blood-sugar-elevating sweetener for foods (60% as sweet as table sugar); thickening agent in liqueurs, syrups, elixirs, & pie fillings; emulsifier for margarines; freshness retainer for baked goods;  menstruum for herbal tinctures; tablet holding agent; fogging agent; de-icing agent; anti-drying agent for watercolors; and as a tobacco humectant.  It is an important component in toothpastes, mouthwashes, skin care products, shaving cream, hair care products, glycerin soaps and other soaps, water based personal lubricants, snuff, rectal laxatives, eye shadow, lipstick, lipgloss, lotions and eyedrops.  For topical care, it is an effective treatment for psoriasis, burns, bites, cuts, rashes, bedsores, and calluses.   It can be used orally to eliminate halitosis and help with periodontal disease, as it is a contact bacterial desiccant.

Pure Organics Glycerin™ is designed to be completely sustainable, natural and carbon neutral.  Our farms, all our inputs, and our processing facility are all certified organic.  Organic corn is naturally fermented to produce organic glycerin.  We also recycle the all-natural byproducts of the process as nutrients for the very farms that grow our corn, and to farms raising organic livestock.

We start with certified organic corn, which is processed into starches and sugars.  Husks, cobs, processing liquids, enzymes, and other biomass byproducts of this process are sent to an organic farm to be fed to animals.  The manure and biogas from the animal farm are then sent back to fertilize the organic corn farm.  The starches and sugars from the corn then undergo our special, patented natural fermentation process, resulting in pure, clean USP grade organic glycerin.  Even the water used during the final refinement process is purified and recycled back into production.
