Weird Bumps on Soap — What is Glycerin Dew?
Jan 12 , 2023
What Are These Bumps On My Soap?
Glycerin dew or "soap sweat" are just little drops of water that can sometimes form on your handmade bar of soap. This happens when soap is made with glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture from the air. The glycerin in the soap draws moisture to it, which is great for your skin but can sometimes alter the way your bar of soap looks.
Why is Glycerin in Soap?
Glycerin is one of the best ingredients to have in your soap simply because it draws moisture to your skin and keeps it there! This protects your skin from damage caused by dryness. It's a natural ingredient that's gentle on sensitive skin. Glycerin is also non-greasy, making it wonderful for people with oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.
So, Glycerin Dew is Okay?
Glycerin dew is totally harmless, won't affect the soap at all and it washes away with the first use. If you receive a soap bar with glycerin dew on it — just remember that means your soap is made from one of the best, natural ingredients your skin could ask for! At Nourish, that’s all we care about!
