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.

In cosmetics, glycerin is usually derived from plants such as soybean or palm. However, it can also be sourced from animals, such as tallow or animal fat.

Horribly drying, leaves my skin feeling super tight every time I use it. I used this product throughout bits of the summer I can't imagine how dry it would leave my skin in the winter. Quite surprised by the popularity of this product but maybe it's more suited to oily skin.
