Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soap making process. In other words, when you make soap, you automatically get glycerin. Many commercial soap manufactures remove the glycerin to create other products such as moisturizing lotions because it is more profitable. Essence of O leaves the glycerin to nurture your skin.
Why should you use Glycerin soap?
Glycerin is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture to your skin. This extra moisture tends to soften the skin. Some say that Glycerin soap prevents premature aging of the skin. Glycerin soap is gentler on the skin than other soaps. This makes it a good choice for people who have dry or sensitive skin.
Is Glycerin soap hypoallergenic?
Yes and No. Yes: because Glycerin soap is less likely to cause allergies in most people. No: because some Glycerin soap contain additives, such as fragrance, which can cause irritation in some people. Because additives differ from soap to soap, some people might be allergic to one soap but not the other. We make a cold process: No Essence, No Color soap with Oatmeal that is amazing and because it has no additives, other than oatmeal, it is a pretty safe bet for people who are allergic to some fragrances. We recommend testing the soap on a small part of your arm and see if it causes any irritation before using it all over.
