Does the vegetable glycerine in the foaming soaps come from wheat, barley, rye, oats, or soy?

Hi Allison.

Glycerin is a component of natural oils (triglycerides). Your own cell walls contain it. We source our vegetable glycerin from palm oil, which is a typical source for high quality vegetable glycerin these days. Glycerin is purified and standardized (USP pharmaceutical grade is what we use) and does not contain gluten. Because it is made from vegetable oil, grain crops are rarely – if ever, used in it’s production (currently).
