Hydrated skin improves your skin barrier; Your skin barrier helps protect against irritants and bacteria.

Glycerin has also been found to have antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Due to these properties, glycerin is often used in wound and burn treatments.

The texture is great, not stripping at all and it froths pretty quickly. My dry skin has no problems with it at all, it smells pretty nice too.
