NOTICE: The Propylene Glycol and Glycerin products sold by Avatar Corporation are not for use in any application intended to produce vapor, fog, mist, smoke or aerosol, wherein there is a possibility of inhalation.

Glycerol, commonly known as glycerin, is a trihydric alcohol [C3H5(OH)3] obtained from animal- and/or vegetable-derived fats and oils during the production of soap, fatty acid and detergent alcohol [natural]. Glycerin also is produced from Propylene [synthetic]. It is a clear, colorless, odorless, viscous, water-soluble, hygroscopic liquid with a sweet taste.

The virtual nontoxicity, safety and multifunctional nature of glycerin have led to its utilization in over 1500 known end uses. It functions as a humectant, plasticizer, emollient, solvent, bodying agent, lubricant and sweetening agent in personal care, pharmaceutical, food, agriculture, adhesives, coatings, refrigeration and many other industries.

Specific applications include its use as a softening agent for creams and lotions; solubilizer and viscosity modifier for liquid soaps, mouth wash, toothpaste, shampoo and hair conditioners; flavor enhancement for oral care and cough syrup; humectant and sweetener in foods; freezing point depressant for aqueous solutions.

Avatar Corporation is a nonrefining processor of natural glycerin obtained from renewable global sources. Our blending and packaging capabilities give outstanding flexibility in meeting rigorous customer requirements.
