Glycerin soaps are easily recognizable from other soaps because they are translucent. Glycerin is a humectant that helps the skin retain moisture. It is good for the skin because it attracts moisture and keeps the skin hydrated hence it is a widely used ingredient to nourish and moisturize the skin. Glycerin soaps help remove dark spots, age spots, revive skin suppleness and nourish the skin to make it look radiant and flawless.
When choosing your glycerin soap, choose the one that contains vegetable-based glycerin. Since glycerin can be made from seed oils, animal fats or mineral oil, glycerin obtained from seed oil is more safer and cruelty-free. Glycerin soaps with added natural ingredients and essential oils help relax, calm and provide aromatherapy benefits.
Glycerin soaps that are 100% vegetable glycerin based are extremely moisturizing as the glycerin will continue to moisturize skin throughout the day. Since glycerin is hygroscopic, it helps moisturize the skin by attracting water from the air. Glycerin is one of the more typical and effective water-binding agents used in cosmetics. The moisturizing properties of glycerin soaps are one of its largest benefits.
Glycerin soap is more gentler on skin than most soaps out there, making it a good choice for people who have particularly dry or sensitive skin. From infants to people with sensitive skins or skin conditions (such as eczema and psoriasis), anyone can benefit from using vegetable glycerin soap as a gentle and non-irritating way to clean the skin.
