  • Product Details & Information

    Glycerine, Glycerin or Glycerol are three names for one of the most versatile and safest chemicals available. Pick up any cosmetic, OTC medicine or personal care product and chances are high that you will find Glycerine as an ingredient.

    Acme-Hardesty offers several grades and varieties of Glycerine. Our vegetable-based (from Palm Oil or Palm Kernel Oil) USP Kosher Grade Glycerine 99.7% has numerous certifications, including RSPO, SAFE, BRC and GFSI. With all the major cosmetic producers announcing their intention to use only RSPO certified Palm Oil by 2013, it is becoming a critical requirement. Our USP palm-based Glycerine also meets the criteria for natural under the guidelines of FDA 21CFR101.22 “Natural”. All our palm-based Glycerine and Oleochemicals are non-GMO, allergen free, and BSE free. In addition, we offer biodiesel Glycerine made primarily from Soybeans, Industrial/Technical Grade material, and Soap Lye Crude Glycerine.

    Whether you need a few drums or a railcar of bulk vegetable-based Glycerine, our exceptional service will make Acme-Hardesty your Glycerine supplier of choice!
