Glycerin is a natural humectant. It naturally attract moisture from the air. If you place a glass of glycerin in the room. Several hours later you will have glycerin and water. Great Science experiment, right? Isn’t that what you want on your dry skin? Something that will take moisture from the air and place it on your skin. Store bought soap does not do that. The glycerin is removed in commercial soap and sold to cosmetics companies to make make-up. So now you know why after you shower, you itch and there’s a film left on your skin and more unsightly in your tub. Natural Glycerin Soap does not produce this. Now that you know better, shower better.
