Glycerin is a hygroscopic, colorless, odorless, and sometimes gelatinous, nontoxic liquid. It is used in skincare because it contains so few toxins that glycerin rarely causes allergic reactions or skin. This makes it a great ingredient to be used by those with sensitive skin. One of the most useful properties in glycerin is its ability to draw in moisture from its surrounding environment. When used in a lotion, it provides an effective shield for the skin to prevent moisture from escaping while pulling moisture from the air and into skin.
The aloe vera gel that is used in topical ointments a skin lotions is derived from a tropical plant that may have originated in ancient Egypt and is now cultivated all over the world. Aloe vera is a natural moisturizer that is widely recognized to be helpful in hydrating dry skin. When applied directly, it penetrates the skin surface and hair folicals to increase the amount of oxygen brought to skin cells. Aloe contains a wealth of active constituents, including amino acids and healthy fatty acids which are important in the process of skin repair. Aloe also contains salicylates, anti-inflammatory compounds which are the precursors of salicylic acid.
Lanolin falls into the lipid-rich emollient class of moisturizers. One of the causes of dry skin is a lack of lipids, which allows water to escape. Lanolin fills in those gaps, preventing future water escape. Skin bio-engineering studies have shown that the durational skin smoothing effect produced by lanolin is imediate, very significant and lasts for many hours. Lanolin is very effective in soothing dry, irritated skin anywhere on your body including the scalp.
