Jub Glycerin Soap – how is it different from other soaps?
“Glycerin soaps are soaps that contain glycerin (also called glycerol), a component of fat or oil. They are recognizably different from other soaps because they are translucent.” source Wikipedia
Jub Glycerin Soap is Sulfate free and does not contain harsh detergents, hardeners, preservatives and Petroleum derivatives, or non-natural products such as Propylene glycol, detergent (sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), and Triethanolamine (TEA). The soap-making industry standards define any soap that is producedwith the use of petroleum derivative as not “all-natural”.
Propylene glycol (petroleum derivative) are used in Glycerin soap so that the product can be easily re-melted.
Sulfates (such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) are surfactants that are used as cleansing agents to cut oil from the skin. SLS and SLES detergents produce bubbles and foam – not really a good thing when it comes to your skin. Soaps and skin cleansers containing SLS and SLES actually strip away precious moisture and protective barriers. The more bubbles in the lather, the more drying and harsh the cleanser will be on the skin.
All-natural and High percentage of Vegetable glycerin
We use special oils in our Glycerin Soap, carefully chosen oils that are high in essential fatty acids (EFAs), an unsaponifiable fatty acid that help moisturize, nourish and balance the skin. During the process of producing Jub Glycerin soap, extra vegetable glycerin is added to produce a mild and moisture balanced soap.
Because glycerin is a humectant, a substance that readily absorbs moisture from its surroundings, the glycerin in the soap will draw the moisture out of the air and onto the soap. This produces droplets of moisture on the soap commonly referred to as “sweat”.
The sweating is moisture from the air that the glycerin attracts, it’s the humectant naturally doing their job.
Jub Glycerin Soap was developed for people who may experience, and want to avoid, skin irritation from SLS and SLES, as well as those who want to avoid using Petroleum or petroleum derivative products. It’s great for people who want to use a mild and natural soap product.
