The Truth About Glycerin Soap:

The soap you buy at your grocery store may be the reason for your dry and damaged skin.
Actually, the soap you think you are buying is truly not soap at all.

Soap purchased from the store is made of petroleum by-products and is in fact considered a "detergent"!!

If you use regular bar soap your skin may feel tight, dry and sometimes itchy.

Not only does regular bar soap contain lye and petroleum, they also contain DEA and drying alcohols.

Because glycerin is a high quality by-product in the soap making process, many mass commercial soap manufacturers often extract the glycerine and sell it as a by-product to be used in higher priced products like lotions and skin creams.

Glycerin, put simply, is a humectant, which means it draws moisture to your skin from the air, allowing it to remain hydrated. This in turn keeps your skin healthy, supple and soft.

In addition to hydrating your skin, glycerin is also known to be a natural remedy for yeast and fungal infections, such as eczema and psoriasis. It is especially good for sensitive skin.

Glycerin soap does not contain synthetic ingredients that will cause skin irritations.
