Durng the soapmaking process, glycerin is formed. We retain all the natural glycerin in our soaps, unlike commercial companies that remove and sell it. Glycerin is wonderful for attracting moisture to your skin. Unfortunately, in humid weather, moisture is attracted to the surface of the soap as well. These soaps contain a high percentage of glycerin, so they need to be completely shrink-wrapped. A heat gun is used to shrink the film and create a tight seal.
