Benefits of Glycerin Soap

Let's face it, there are a lot of toxins in the environment that work against having healthy looking skin. Furthermore, irritated, dull skin caused by the use of conventional soaps adds to the problem. So what can a person do to counteract all of these enemies of healthy skin? Do not fear because glycerin soap can help. There are many benefits of using glycerin soap.

Properties of Glycerin

Glycerin is a colorless, odorless and viscous organic compound. It is a good solvent which is why we recommend keeping your glycerin soap on a soap dish with good drainage when not in use. Glycerin absorbs moisture from the air and has a soothing effect on your skin when diluted with water. It will soften your skin leading to a younger looking complexion with a healthy glow.

Natural Ingredients

Soaps with synthetic chemicals can harm your skin in many ways including causing irritation, redness, swelling and itching. Homemade glycerin soap is free of synthetic chemicals and is all natural. People who are allergic to chemicals or synthetic soaps can use natural glycerin soap without worrying about causing further damage or irritation.

Treating Skin Disorders with Glycerin Soap

People with skin diseases like eczema or psoriasis find it very difficult to choose the right soap as even the slightest amount of chemicals in their soaps can aggravate their existing condition. Glycerin soap is very mild and gentle on the skin and can even help in relieving the symptoms of certain skin disorders. Skinergy is particulary effective in this aspect.

Natural Cleanser

Glycerin soap can be a very good cleanser for your face and can help you get rid of the extra oils and dirt that clogs your pores. It is also effective for acne prone skin.
