"Sweating" Soap Bars?

Jan 02, 2015

Did you know? Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soap-making process and whilst commercial manufacturers remove the glycerin for use in their more profitable lotions and creams with lots of chemicals and parabens, our handcrafted soap retains glycerin in each and every bar! That is why some of you might find our soap bars "sweating" and producing a layer of liquid especially in our very wet and humid weather. Good news! It's not that the soaps are "spoilt" but it's simply the natural goodness of our soaps. As our soap bars produce natural glycerin, glycerin being a humectant i.e. it draws moisture into itself. So when you wash with any of our handcrafted natural soap, there will be a thin layer of glycerin left behind, which will then draw moisture from the air, onto your skin (thus moisturizing your skin). That’s the selling point of our handcrafted natural soaps! You stay moisturised even without using a moisturiser lotion or cream after your shower! :) Soap Tips: Q: How can I keep my unused soap bars longer? A: If you have unused all natural soap bars on your shelf and you want to prevent them from "sweating", simply place them in an air-tight container so that your soaps keep longer! Or more effective still, place them in your wardrobe with a dehumidifier (you can find many in the supermarkets eg. "thirsty hippo") and you know what, your clothes will also smell better too! ;)
