Why Plant-Derived Glycerine Makes Our Soap Bars a Must-Have

Posted by Rocky Mountain Barber on

Introduction: The Time-Honored Role of Glycerine in Soapmaking

Soap has been an essential pillar of cleanliness and wellness for centuries, evolving from rudimentary mixtures to specialized formulations. Among its key ingredients, glycerine stands out for its unique properties. Over the years, glycerine has become a cornerstone in premium skincare products, heralded for its exceptional moisturizing capabilities. Our new Boulder Bar Soap Bars incorporate this time-honored ingredient, providing you with a cleansing experience that is both effective and beneficial for your skin.

What Sets Glycerine-Based Soaps Apart

Soaps can be a mixed bag, created from a variety of fats, oils, and alkalis. Some bar soaps are formulated with harsh surfactants like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), especially those of commercial variety. Others may incorporate additives like oatmeal or aloe for additional skin benefits.

Interestingly, glycerine is often a natural byproduct in handmade soaps that use traditional methods. However, it's sometimes removed in commercial soap-making processes, leaving the soap less moisturizing. Our soap bars retain this valuable component, making them stand out in the world of soap. Now, let's delve into how glycerine-based soaps like ours compare to these other types of soaps.

Glycerine-Based Soap vs. Other Soaps: The Comparison

A Difference You Can See: The Transparency of Our Soap Bars

One of the first things you'll notice about our soap bars is their clear appearance. This transparency isn't just for show; it's a testament to the purity of the ingredients we use. Many traditional soaps have an opaque or milky appearance due to additives or fillers that don't necessarily offer any benefits to your skin. Our clear, glycerine-based soap bars provide an immediate visual assurance that you're using a high-quality product. Furthermore, the transparency is an indication of our soap's humectant properties, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin, keeping it hydrated and soft.

Glycerine-Based Soaps: A Balanced Cleanse

Glycerine-based soaps offer a perfect blend of effective cleansing and skin hydration. They cleanse without stripping the skin of its natural oils, leaving you feeling refreshed and nourished.

Other Soaps: What You're Missing Out On

Many conventional soaps, especially those with synthetic surfactants, may leave your skin dry and irritated. They often lack the moisturizing benefits that glycerine can offer.

The Verdict: Why Glycerine Wins

Choosing a glycerine-based soap like ours is opting for a cleansing product that respects your skin’s natural balance, while also taking an ethical and health-conscious stand.

More Than Glycerine: Coconut Oil, Safflower Oil, and Oat Protein

In addition to glycerine, our soap is also made with Coconut Oil, Safflower Oil, and Oat Protein, a trio of natural ingredients carefully selected to enrich your skin with essential nutrients, enhance moisture retention, and provide a soothing touch for a comprehensive, holistic cleansing experience.

Coconut Oil: Nature's Moisturizer

Coconut oil is renowned for its natural moisturizing properties, providing your skin with a hydrated and smooth finish.

Safflower Oil: The Nutrient Supplier

Rich in linoleic acid, safflower oil helps maintain the integrity of the skin barrier, making it easier for your skin to retain moisture.

Oat Protein: The Soothing Touch

Oat protein adds a soothing quality to our soap bars, making them ideal for sensitive or irritated skin. It provides gentle exfoliation while nourishing your skin.

The Extra Mile: Ethical and Health-Conscious Choices

When you choose our soap bars, you're not just making a smart choice for your skin; you're making an ethical one as well. Our soap bars are made from RSPO-sourced oils, are cruelty-free, SLS & SLES-free, gluten-free, vegan, and soy-free.
