Sorbitol Powder, FCC/USP/NF
Product Code: SORBTL
Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol, which the human body metabolizes slowly. Sorbitol is a sugar substitute for some foods and products such as diet drinks, ice cream, mints, cough syrups, and sugar-free chewing gum. Sorbitol is referred to as a nutritive sweetener because it provides dietary energy: 2.6 food calories per gram versus the average of 4 food calories for carbohydrates.
Sorbitol is primarily used in cosmetics as a sweetener, a thickener and humectant. It is a conditioning agent for the skin, preventing moisture loss from both the skin and the hair.
