Hi,

I just wanted to find out if glycerin soap is a good option as opposed to the usual ones available, for dry skin. 

Someone said that glycerin was found to dehydrate the skin more than to do the opposite... is this true?

Same goes with anything that contains parrafin - they say that it dehydrates the skin Unsure

This study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22007909 shows it's almost as effective as urea. Here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18510666 glycerine's moisturizing property is reviewed.

I recommend 2 grams of MSM for skin care daily.
