Mannitol

* A humectant

Mannitol is a sugar alcohol found in abundance in nature, particularly from trees, and in marine algae and fresh mushrooms. It is an isomer of Sorbitol and is typically produced today by the hydrogenation of specialty glucose syrups and sweeteners (Source). In cosmetics and beauty products, it is used primarily as a humectant, but can also be found serving as a binder, masking agent, moisturizing agent, flavoring agent (in lip balms, etc.) and skin conditioner.
