Sorbitol is low caloric refined sugar alcohol, which is produced from dextrose. Chemically it is hexahydric alcohol and is also known as hexatol, D-Glucitol and D- Sorbitol. Chemically, Sorbitol is a hexitol, C6H14O6. Sorbitol was first isolated from the juice Mountain Ash berry (Sorbus aucuparia L) in 1872. Later on it was also found in fresh apple, cherry, and plum as part of freshness. Today, Sorbitol is commercially prepared by high-pressure hydrogenation catalytic process. Sorbitol syrup has mild pleasant sweet taste, without bitter after taste.

Sorbitol is often used in modern cosmetics as a humectant and thickener. Some transparent gels can only be made with Sorbitol as it has a refractive index sufficiently high for transparent formulations. It is preferred in cosmetics, because in addition to its moisture stabilizing property, it is slippery and has emulsifying properties. It is non-toxic and leaves an agreeable coolness on the skin. It is a useful component of beauty creams, shampoos, shaving creams, lotions, soaps etc.
