# How can I obtain crystal-clear glycerin?

I'm trying to get perfect crystal clear glycerin for my experiments with decorative soap. Is there a special way to get it or should I buy a special formula of it? I have not succeeded in purifying the glycerin I have to more than a milky-translucent, semi-transparent soap.

There are less expensive (but pure enough for your needs) options, so be sure to explore the other grades available from other vendors. For example, you can secure a gallon of Kosher USP food grade vegetable-derived glycerin for $14.99 from Amazon. This product (or similar) is adequate for your needs at a better price point that lab-grade reagents. • @orrachevsky - I'm amended my answer to include an option that is probably best for you. It pays to shop around, and you can get a gallon of glycerin (USP food grade, vegetable-derived and Kosher) for$14.99 from Amazon (see link in my answer, above). Good luck! – Todd Minehardt Aug 15 '16 at 14:57
