Sorbitol 70% liquid

Sorbitol is  often used instead of glycerine as it similarly retains moisture and provides that velvety feel to the skin. Sorbitol besides being more resistant to bacteriological degradation is also less vulnerable to mould growth than many other humectants in cosmetic formulations. Sorbitol is a type of carbohydrate called a sugar alcohol, or polyol, which are water-soluble compounds that occur naturally in many fruits and vegetables. Sorbitol is also commercially produced from glucose to provide sweetness, texture and moisture retention.

Chemically sorbitol is a water soluble polyhydric alcohol with a sweet taste. It offers high formulating stability in addition to its humectant properties. It is used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products such as toothpaste, foods such as sweets and chewing gum.

Sorbitol is generally used at 2 to 5% levels in skin and body care products: creams mouthwashes, toothpaste, hair spray, liniments etc.
