For the #GemWoman event, I made some glycerin soap to put up as exhibits. Plus I had to celebrate independence also, so i themed one of my cupcakes glycerin soap ‘GWG’

As anticipated, quite a number of people were interested in what kind of soaps they were, and my quick answer was natural soap. While that is correct, I like to re-phrase by saying, these were natural Glycerin soap made from natural oils.

So what is glycerin exactly?

In the space of soap making, when we combined fat (natural oils) and base (lye), what we get is a salt (soap) and glycerin. However in our commercial soaps, yes, your bathing soap- the glycerin is usually removed. And often for shelf life lengthening and profitability. Manufacturers remove some, or all, of the glycerin for use in other cosmetic products like moisturizers, creams and other expensive beauty products. The ‘soap product” products is altered by adding detergents or other chemicals to cleanse, but also strip skin of its natural moisture and oils. Big brands really win when customers buy their detergent soap products that dry out the skin – then buy their lotions and creams to replenish it.

Glycerin is a vegetable oil and powerful humectant – a substance that attracts and retains moisture. When glycerin is allowed to remain in the soap, it makes a gentle and well balanced soap. Hence the name “glycerin soap”.

Because of the way glycerin soaps are make, it is not unusual that users discover they can skip the expensive moisturizers. Their skin has never felt better! Its low, silky lather is gently cleansing and contains no harsh detergents

Do you then know that It is Dermatologist recommended? Yes It is

Glycerin soap is gentler on skin than most soaps, making it a good choice for people who have particularly dry or sensitive skin. Glycerin soap also has a lower pH than other soaps, which helps the skin retain its natural moisture. Since glycerin is hygroscopic, it may also help moisturize the skin by attracting water from the air.

One drawback though is that it does not lather as much as other soaps and may dissolve if it is left in water or attracts too much moisture from the air. Glycerin

My Tip to usage: is to gather up some of its lather and rub it on your skin/face, leave for a while and just rinse away. Your skin will stay hydrated all day/night.
