Starting to wonder why your skin is so dry even though you are applying lotion everyday? Not only does the type of lotion you use affect your skin (see my previous post on Shea Butter in the Oct. 2005 archives), but so does the type of soap you use.
The soap you buy are your local grocery store may be the culprit to your never ending dry skin. Actually, the soap you think you are buying, is in fact, not soap at all. “Soap” as we know it is actually made of petroleum by-products and is infact detergent. And if you have been reading my blog since the beginning, you know the effects petroleum has on your skin. Well, I don’t have to tell you, but if you use regular bar soap you know that your skin is tight, dry and sometimes itchy. Not only does regular bar soap contain lye and petroleum, they also contain DEA and drying alcohols.
This is all great to know—so what kind of soap can I use that will be good for my skin you ask??
Pure Glycerin soap. Glycerin is a humectant, drawing moisture to your skin, allowing it to remain hydrated and soft. I love soaps made of pure vegetable glycerin. Beyond hydrating your skin, glycerin is also known to be a natural remedy for yeast and fungal infections, such as eczema and psoriasis. It is especially good for sensitive skin. Glycerin soap does not contain synthetic ingredients that will cause skin irritations. It keeps your skin looking AND feeling healthy and soft.
Jordan Essentials has glycerin soap that each member of the family can enjoy. Our glycerin soaps do not contain DEA, a known carcinogen. So they safe and good for your skin. Give them a try, your skin will thank you.
