Glycerin is a natural byproduct to the soap-making process. When used on the skin, it helps to attract and retain moisture. Naturally made soaps retain glycerin. Some companies denote which soaps still have glycerin in them, but companies can choose to use the byproduct in other products such as lotion or face creams.
Things You'll Need
- Airtight container
Spoon or pour the glycerin into a container. The receptacle should have a lid that can be sealed fairly tightly. Screw-on lids work best.
Fasten the lid atop the container. This will help keep the glycerin in its natural state. The purity of your glycerin will dictate how fluid it is.
Store the container in a cabinet or drawer. Don't expose the container to excessive amounts of sunlight because repeated heating can break down the chemical bonds in the glycerin.
