Glycerine is great tonic for the skin – it’s a gentle emollient and a wonderful humectant. Commercial soap manufacturers make it a practice to remove the glycerine that is produced during the saponification (soap-making) process. The glycerine is a highly profitable substance, often sold to other companies who use it to make lotions and moisturizers.
All natural soaps are made with some kind of fat or oil, combined with Lye (Sodium hydroxide) and water . Lye is the alkali that blends them and it becomes soap and Glycerine ,and this process is called Saponification. Some get worried hearing the word “lye” as a chemical, but the fact is that nobody ,nowhere can make soap without lye .Thats the process and that’s how its done. In the Cold process method, unlike the other methods like Heat & Pour methods, the soap formed is allowed to rest for around 6 weeks to cure ,letting the Naturally formed Glycerine to remain in the final soap bar and the Lye to completely escape from the soap. The final bar of Soap you get is filled only with loads of nature’s goodness for your skin.
