Discover the many benefits of glycerin for your skin, as featured in our natural and handmade soap bars

Glycerin is a natural humectant, which means that it attracts and retains water. This makes it an ideal ingredient for skincare products, as it can help to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized. Glycerin is also a natural emollient, which means that it can soften and smooth the skin.

In this article, we will discuss the three biggest skin benefits of glycerin and why it is a great ingredient for natural and handmade soap bars.

What is Glycerin and How is it Made?

Glycerin, also called glycerol, is a colorless, odorless, and viscous liquid that is created during the traditional saponification process. It can also be extracted from vegetable and animal oil, but can also be made from synthetic ingredients. In addition, it is also a body’s own substance, which is located in the top layer of skin – the horny layer. In short, there are many roads that lead to glycerin.

Vegetable glycerol, is a clear liquid usually made from coconut, palm or soybean oil. It is odorless, has a syrupy consistency and even tastes mildly sweet. It can also be synthetic, and in rare cases also made from animal tallow. But it can also be a mixture of both animal and vegetable oils.

The glycerin present in Nature Bar’s soap and shampoo bars is created during the traditional saponification process and is therefore completely natural and not added.

Glycerin is a safe and effective ingredient for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is also non-comedogenic, which means that it will not clog pores.
