Did you ever wonder why handmade soap is moisturising for your skin in comparison to other soaps?
The explanation is in the soap making process. Handmade soap is made using a traditional method which results in glycerine being formed in the soap. Glycerine is a humectant; it attracts/absorbs moisture from the air.
When you wash with a glycerine rich handmade soap, a thin layer of glycerine is left behind on your skin. This glycerine attracts moisture from the air onto your skin and assists to keep your skin moisturised.
