Is There Such A Thing As Whiskey Soap? Hell Yes, And It’s Awesome

Is There Such A Thing As Whiskey Soap? Hell Yes, And It’s Awesome

Whiskey, Bourbon, Rye, Hooch, whatever name you call it, it’s not exactly the first thing you think about when you think of skin care. But, maybe you should?! As with most things in our lives, too much can be potentially harmful, but when used in moderation, it can have an effective and somewhat surprising effect. Whiskey in soap is no different. The benefits of whiskey in your skin care products result in a pleasant excuse to experience a truly unique bathing experience.

Whiskey is a grain alcohol, which means that it has the same cleansing agents as a rubbing alcohol or other alcohols commonly found in cosmetics would. Yet, because it’s distilled from grains, it is not as harsh and drying on your skin, but still provides your skin with the antiseptic properties. These hygienic properties help to cleanse your skin of dirt and bacteria while gently calming inflammation. Whiskey has also been found to reduce bumps and irritations on your skin by helping to relax the blood vessels, effectively helping to fight acne. Alcoholic properties have also been known to help control excess oil on your skin, resulting in a healthier and younger looking skin. Lastly, throughout the barrel-aging process, whiskey formulates some amazing aromas, that when combined with a carefully selected grouping of essential oils, provides some of the most outstandingly unique soaps you’ll ever experience.

So, we’re certainly not saying you should run out and buy a bottle of whiskey and go to town on your skin (or your cocktail) but, when a soap or other skin care product contains whiskey, we say give it a try….plus, it would make a fantastic compliment to your shower manhattan cocktail!
