Other projects in which we have used vegetable glycerin:

1.  We formulated a lava lamp lip gloss using vegetable glycerin in the colored portion of the lip gloss.  See Lava Lamp Lip Gloss Recipe.

2.  Want to prevent your melt and pour soap from cracking when folding it?  Add a small amount of vegetable glycerin to the melt and pour soap while it is melted.  This will give the soap more elasticity. 

3.  We use vegetable glycerin in our melt and pour soap cupcake frosting recipe.
