The local chemist only had glycerol not glycerine. Would there be any problems or concerns with using this instead of glycerine in DIY forumlations such as CE Ferulic?

There is no chemical difference between glycerol, glycerin or glycerine. All 3 names refer to the same compound, propane-1,2,3-triol. Glycerin and glycerol are both names for the same molecule. However, depending on where you are getting the glycerol from, it could be more or less pure.

Also look for Vegetable Glycerine which is derived from Plants and not Animals. :)

Bella's right. Vegetable glycerine is distinct from the animal -based one.
