Dry skin is caused by a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin. Emollients/moisturizers work by forming an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. Petrolatum, lanolin, mineral oil and dimethicone are common emollients. Humectants, including glycerin, lecithin, and propylene glycol, draw water into the outer layer of skin. Many products also have ingredients that soften the horny substance (keratin) that holds the top layer of skin cells together (e.g., urea, alpha hydroxy acids such as lactic/citric/glycolic acid, and allantoin). This helps the dead skin cells fall off, helps the skin keep in more water, and leaves the skin feeling smoother and softer.
Skin is the largest organ of the body, and it matters what you put on it as equal as what you put inside your body. So, if buying a soap basket on your gift shopping list, choose wisely not to compromise your loved ones health. Beside enjoying the wonderful sweet scents and the creamy luxurious texture in your everyday shower, using natural organic soaps made of 100% natural essential oils with no harmful chemicals is gentle to the skin and could be beneficial to your health. It is a wonderful reasonably priced gift and it is becoming a trendy custom to give hand-made soap favours in weddings, baby-showers, and other celebrations.
