Sorbitol Liquid is perfect for use in special effects make-up and prosthetics, where it is used as a plasticizer to increase the flexibility of the gelatine. Sorbitol also adds toughness to the finished product.

With most confectionery, the water content – which is responsible for the softness of most masses – gradually evaporates causing the sugar to crystallise. This causes hardness, dryness, cracks, shrinking and discolouration, all of which are undesirable.The addition of a small quantity of Sorbitol liquid can significantly reduce this tendency due to its ability to bind the water molecules and thereby stabilise the mass.
This food grade sorbitol can also be used as a sweetener in home brewing as well as in baked goods.
Sorbitol liquid is also used in modern cosmetics as a humectant and thickener. Sorbitol is used in some toothpastes and mouthwashes.
