The combination glycerin & rose water can actually be extremely beneficial to the skin!
Glycerin is derived from natural fats and oils. It is extremely hygroscopic and has the ability to absorb water.
Its use in cosmetics is very common as it hydrates and moisturises the skin of the face, hair and body.
It is widely used in soap making as a percentage ratio of 15 to 20% or in creams and lotions.
Typical feature about the handmade soaps is that because they contain more glycerin, they are highly softening, especially in combination with vegetable oils such as rose, olive, palm, etc.
Used in hand creams, it protects the skin of the hands from cracking and wounds.
It also strengthens the skin’s protective barrier, thus protecting it from adverse weather and air pollution.
Glycerin stimulates the removal of dead skin. After prolonged use of glycerin-containing products, the skin becomes smoother and if you have freckles, they will become lighter.
It also accelerates the healing of the epidermis during injury or skin diseases that are associated with over-keratinization, for example psoriasis.
