By Sandy Palisch

Glycerin is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture on your skin. It’s like a natural moisturizer for your skin. And its not greasy, so it great for all skin types. The good news is that Glycerin is a natural byproduct of the Cold Soap Making Process used at Simply Organic Soap and is, by default, in our all our handcrafted, small batch soaps!

Many people are surprised at how good their skin feel after using one of our soaps in the shower and ask “What are you putting in there to make it so amazing?” The real question should be what are we NOT taking out? The Answer – Glycerin!

Many big soap manufacturers remove the glycerin from their synthetic and detergent based soaps and sell it to other cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies for use in their products or they make a secondary moisturizer from it and sell you 2 products. The result being that your skin feels dried out or you feel like there is a dry film on your skin.

Here are some other great benefits of Glycerin besides hydrating your skin and not leaving you feeling dry and scratchy.

The skin nourishing properties of our handcrafted soaps with glycerin can be used every day in the bath or shower. Its regular use will help your skin look healthier and attractive. It can help even out your skin tone and texture and may reduce the appearance of lines and other surface blemishes.

Glycerin can help cells grow and heal acting as a natural medication for fungal infections like eczema and psoriasis. It can reduce bruising and repair infected tissue and cells more quickly.

Glycerin also increases epidermal layer thickness and improves barrier function locking moisture in and keeping harmful environmental elements out of your skin.

Be glad our Organic Soaps have Glycerin naturally produced in them so you can Enjoy a Spa Day - Everyday! It's just good. clean. fun.
