Do You Know?

Transparent soaps look so good to hold against the light and see through. A lot many adverts have that image. Do you know how a plain jane bar of soap turns transparent?

Transparent soap is made by adding alcohol to the soap; and that too 80%-90% ABV alcohol. Such high alcohol content is very drying for the skin. It strips the skin of the natural oil. This can leave the skin scratchy and itchy. It can also cause flakiness. Bereft of its natural oil barrier, the skin can become prone to rashes too.

Choose a soap which is good for you, not just good to look at; much like choosing a life partner 😉
