Glycerin soap is considered one of the most moisturizing soaps available. It is gentler on the skin than most soaps, helps skin retain its natural moisture, and can be used on all skin types. Glycerin is a natural by-product from the soap-making process. However, many soap manufacturers remove most of the glycerin from soap to use it in more expensive lotions and moisturizing creams. Ever get that tight feeling on your skin after washing with a typical soap? Glycerin soap is extremely moisturizing and allows your skin to remain hydrated for several hours after use. Continued use can lead to softer skin. These soaps are also great for shaving!
I use SFIC brand all-natural soap bases (commonly referred to as Melt and Pour). They have a natural rich lather and are high in kosher vegetable glycerin. These bases do not contain synthetic detergents or parabens. They have excellent skincare performance with 100% of the lather produced from saponification of natural oils producing real soap. Natural additives can include goat milk, shea butter, or honey which will be noted on each individual product. All bases are made in the USA.
I add ingredients such as skin-safe fragrance oils, colorants (mica, pigment, oxides, or ultramarines), and decorations. These synthetic ingredients represent not more than 3% of the total weight of each batch of soap.
