Hi , Everyone ,

I hear that adding salt to a soap can help release soap from molds faster but what benefit does salt have adding to clear glycerin facial soap . Does it have skin benefits?

It is true that adding a small amount of salt to regular soap can add hardness and allow the soap to be unmolded quicker.

Adding a small amount of salt to melt and pour (aka glycerin soap, aka transparent soap) is going to make the soap even more prone to sweating than it already is. I wouldn't add any salt to this type of soap.
