Glyceryl Stearate is derived from palm kernel, vegetable or soy oil. It is also found naturally in the human body, acting as a lubricant on the skin’s surface. This is what gives the skin a soft and smooth look. Additionally, it easily penetrates the skin to slow the loss of water by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. It has been shown to protect skin from free-radical damage as well.
