What is glycerin soap?

What is glycerin?

Glycerin is a colorless, odorless, and viscous organic compound. It is a neutral substance with a sweet taste that has a high boiling point and freezes to form a thick gummy paste.

Glycerin is a good solvent and absorbs moisture from the air. It has a calming effect on the skin when diluted with water, cleanses the skin, and is also known to soften the skin.

Glycerin is an ingredient in the oil and fat that is used to make soaps.

We create our designer bars and soaps using glycerin soap base.

The reason we use glycerin soap for our designed collection is primarily because glycerin soap easily takes the shape of our designs.

Glycerin soap is sold in many different shapes, colors, and scents. It can be round, oval, rectangular or shaped like guest soaps such as flowers and animals.

Guest soaps look decorative on a bathroom counter. They also make great hostess gifts. Some types of glycerin soaps have fun ways for children to encourage them to wash their hands. A glycerin soap for children can be in the shape of a car, a cute teddy bear, or a heart.

It has a beautiful texture and color that allows us to create a variety of shapes and designs, but, as we always say, our soaps are not only beautiful,

They are great soaps for everyday use!

Not many people know this, but glycerin soap has many benefits.

It keeps our skin nourished and prevents it from drying out. We make sure of this by carefully selecting the best ingredients on the market and offering you this quality in the form of a beautifully designed soap.

Glycerin soap can be made at home or purchased commercially.

Where to buy glycerin soap

Ja Bonita Fábrica produces glycerin soap using English glycerin soap base. Usually the soap base is already pH balanced and the nourishing fatty oil content is already balanced.

The English base is considered one of the best, because the quality of the finished soap from this base is usually good. This soap base melts and hardens quickly, and the resulting soap does not dry out the skin. The English base is practically odorless, which means that it is easy to scent, it preserves the odors of essential oils.

Glycerin soap can be transparent, light-colored, white, or a few colors.

There are several types of soap base: solid, creamy, and liquid.

In turn, the solid base is transparent, white and organic (based on natural ingredients, it has a slight yellowish tint).

Clear soap base generally contains enough glycerin to make it smooth and hydrating. Transparency provides a depth of color and saturation that is more difficult to achieve with other types of soap bases.

The white soap base is completely opaque and has shades ranging from milky white to beige.

The Organic Soap Base: This product is a cross between a soap made from scratch and a glycerin base. It is considered the most natural, made from tropical oils and glycerin. It does not differ in transparency. But at the same time it is perfect even for sensitive skin. An organic soap base is considered the safest, healthiest, and of the highest quality.

The creamy base is reminiscent of a soft white granulated cream, ideal for preparing soaps for sensitive skin. It is designed to create various peels, scrubs and to decorate solid soap. To make a scrub, simply add essential and foundation oils as well as abrasive particles to a mild soap base. The advantage of a mild soap base is that it interacts with oils much better than a hard soap base. Therefore, the content of oils that you add to your cosmetics will be higher in the final product.

The liquid soap base is suitable for creating shampoos, shower gels, bath foams, and more. Liquid-based concentrates have a neutral pH level, so they are safe for the body. It accepts base oils well and has a gentle effect on the skin. It is easily colored and creates a nice light lather. With the help of various decoctions, oils and other useful ingredients, you will always have useful and natural cosmetics at home.

Glycerin soap properties

Glycerin soap is hydrating

Glycerin acts as a humectant, which means that it absorbs moisture from the air; in fact, a glycerin soap bar, left in a humid environment, will actually be covered with tiny drops of moisture (water), proof of its moisture-attracting power. That's great for our skin, because it keeps it hydrated.

Glycerin soap helps your skin stay healthy

By keeping your skin well hydrated, you can create a solid foundation for healthy skin. A fully hydrated and healthy skin prevents you from developing wrinkles, stretch marks and tears in the skin.

Although glycerin is a great soap for cleansing your entire body, using it to wash your face can offer you additional benefits.

Glycerin soap can help diminish or completely eliminate acne when used as a face wash.

Glycerin is a popular ingredient in shaving soaps due to its hydrating quality.

Some types of glycerin soap have added moisturizers and skin nutrients, such as vitamin E and avocado oil, cocoa butter, coconut, sea buckthorn, shea butter, sweet almond oil, or jojoba to make the soap even more beneficial and gentle to the skin. All vegetable oils contain a complex of vitamins and fatty acids useful for the skin, each one has nutritional and protective properties and each one is good in its own way, but you can individually choose the one that is most beneficial for your skin.

We use the best colors and fragrances to make our delicious cupcakes, flowers, animals, soap chocolates and glycerin bars. We want them to look great and feel amazing in the shower.

Glycerin soap is very stable and its shape stays the same for a relatively long time. So when you use our soaps, their shapes will show even after many uses.

To scent the soap, we use 100% natural and certified essential oils.

Essential oils not only give the soap a pleasant smell, but also have a healing effect on the skin and the body in general. For example, tea tree oil is an excellent antiseptic and helps treat oily and acne-prone skin, chamomile is good for baby's delicate and sensitive skin, lavender calms and relieves stress, and cheerful citrus scents improve mood.

Essential oils have natural scents as they are extracted from various parts of plants.

Essential oils are selected individually, according to the needs of the skin.

You can make all these types of soap in our soap workshop with your children or separately. You can make soap according to your preferences and wishes.

You can add a wide variety of fillers to your soap, depending on the additional properties you want to add.

To make the soap more useful: moisturizing and skin care, you can put honey, aloe vera gel, glycerin, vitamins in liquid form (plant extracts intended for cosmetics).

For additional cleaning, for example oily or problem skin, we add cosmetic clay: blue, white, black, pink and fine sea salt. These components also saturate the skin with valuable minerals.

You can make an exfoliating soap by adding ground oats, bran, drunk coffee, cocoa liquor, sugar, salt, specially processed apricot or peach seeds, crushed natural mother-of-pearl, etc. instead of a regular scrub, to cleanse and exfoliate the skin.

The dried herbs and flowers also act as a light exfoliation and decorate the finished soap. To make the soap more attractive and interesting, you can use coffee beans, citrus peel, dried flowers, oatmeal, coconut, and the like. Poppy seeds, which also play the role of a scrub, look very beautiful in a transparent colored soap.

Sometimes larger inclusions are added to the soap, for example loofah, a natural loofah of plant origin. It is a two-in-one product, both soap and a sponge, with which you can wash and gently massage the body at the same time.

Sometimes jewelry and plastic toys melt into soap.
