Glycerin may be added at trace to enhance your soaps moisturizing qualities. Vegetable glycerin is a water soluable humectant and is a wonderful addition to skin care products.

Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colourless, thick liquid. It can be dissolved into water or alcohol, but not oils. Many things will dissolve into glycerin easier than they do into water or alcohol making glycerin a good solvent. Vegetable glycerin is a water soluble humectant widely used by Cold Process soap makers. Extra glycerin added to a soap bar produces a clear finish and extra moisturizing qualities.

Glycerin has many uses. It may be added to lotions and at trace to enhance their moisturizing qualities making it a wonderful addition to skin care products.

Cold process soap makers use it because it is a humectant. (A humectant is a substance used primarily in foods and cosmetic products to help retain moisture) This means that it attracts moisture to your skin. It is a natural by-product in the soap making process. Commercial manufacturers remove glycerin to be used in more expensive lotions and creams but an amount remains in every soap bar made.
