Glycerol taken internally is a mild laxative. Used externally, it softens and moisturises the skin.
Use as directed by a medical practitioner.
Always read the label and follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your healthcare professional.
Glycerol should be administered with caution to diabetic patients and those at risk of dehydration. Drink plenty of water. Increase fibre in diet. Prolonged use of laxatives is undesirable and may lead to a dependence.
