  • Glycerin is a non-toxic, naturally occurring substance, so it is often used as the base of soap for sensitive skin, because it won't cause irritation.


So I must try it out!  Well it is again very frugal, a small 100ml bottle costs less than $4 ...and most concoctions use about a tablespoon it is very economical. Just yesterday I found one with rosewater added ...ohhh nice.  I can't wait to try out some skin care products.  The first one I'm going to try out is a moisturizer made from, glycerin, witch hazel and vitamin E oil. 

I'll update soon!
