What is cold process soap?
Cold process soap is created by mixing oils, fats and/or butters with water and lye. Mixing lye with oils causes a chemical reaction called saponification ( the process in which oils become soap).
Is there lye in my soap?
No. The lye in the soap neutralizes during the curing process so there is no lye left in the finished product.
Why is lye used to make soap?
Soap cannot be made without lye. It's a necessary ingredient in order to saponify the oils.
What is curing?
Curing is the process in which the soap is cut into bars and allowed to sit in a place without humidity and that has free air flow. The average curing time is 4-6 weeks but can be longer depending on personal preference and the recipe used. This is to allow bars to harden, lose excess moisture, and to become milder on the skin. The longer the bar cures the gentler, richer, and creamier the lather becomes.
How should I store my soap?
For a longer lasting bar store your soap in a dish that drains or any dry place.
