P&G started producing glycerin almost as early as it started producing consumer products back in 1858. Today, P&G Chemicals is one of the largest manufacturers of glycerin in the world. Glycerin is an extremely versatile product that is being used in a wide variety of applications. Crude glycerine is a co-product resulting from the manufacturing process of a number of oleochemical products.
The key crude glycerin generating processes are:
- Fatty Alcohol
- Fatty Acid
- Methyl Ester
Crude glycerine is purified at refineries in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA and Kuantan Malaysia. Our refineries have flexibility to produce a variety of different grades of glycerin.
P&G Chemicals glycerin is monitored and in full compliance with IPEC standards. The USP monograph and GMP standards are the base standards for P&G produced glycerin. This includes staying up to date with all monograph changes required by IPEC for USP. In addition, other international monographs such as EP and JP may be available for some products.
P&G Chemicals product offerings may be slightly different around the world to meet local regulations and customer demands. Please consult with your Account Executive or nearest P&G Chemicals regional office to confirm availability of products to serve your needs.
