Natural Washing Company Glycerin Bars
Glycerine, also known as glycerin or glycerol, is a natural humectant (or moisturising agent) that works by drawing in and retaining moisture in the upper layer of your skin. Glycerin improves your skin’s water content to ensure your skin is well hydrated. It works very well on dry, rough patches of skin. Using soap that contains high levels of glycerin is a great way to combat dry rough skin.
In our Glycerin Bars the glycerin is made entirely from plant based oils and therefore suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It is produced naturally as part of the soap making process and is often removed from the soap to use in other products such as moisturising lotions. Our Glycerin Bars retain the natural glycerin as well as having extra pure glycerin added to increase the glycerin content. This results in a beautiful highly moisturising natural soap Bar. Producing a natural high content glycerin soap is an expensive process.
Due to the high glycerin content these soap bars have less lather than normal soap bars and are also more prone to dissolving away if left in water on the side of the sink or shower - we recommend using a soap dish!
Our Glycerin Bar is as simple and pure as it can be, there are no added colourings or artificial fragrances, the scent of this bar is from essential oils Mint and Tea Tree which are famed for their antiseptic properties. It is handmade, using minimal ingredients, air dried on wooden racks, hand stamped with a custom made Natural Washing Company brass plate in an old soap stamping machine dating from 1910 and hand polished as part of the finishing process. It is made in Britain, we absolutely love it and hope you do too.
