Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Ignorance is not bliss. The source of glycerin cannot be unknown. Manufacturers often do not mention the source on the labels. However, if you reach out to them, they will disclose that information to you. It is necessary for you to verify before you use a questionable product.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
