Why is homemade soaps better? Home made soap also contains glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture from the air to the skin. It’s produced naturally during the soapmaking process. Some commercial soaps remove the glycerin from the bars and sell it to make lotions and creams and other things, sometimes replacing it with synthetics. Just google it. You will see why some consider it liquid gold.
Even though there was no scented added to this recipe, they still have a mild smell of clean. This soap turned out very soft with a nice lather. If I melt shea butter slowly then immediately freeze it, it allows the butter to become softer.
