The Soap Rack

Cold process soaps have to cure for a minimum of four weeks.  After each batch is poured, it's left to sit in its mold to set overnight, then cut by hand into bars and placed on a curing rack.  During the four weeks to follow, the bars complete the process of saponification (that's a fancy word for the hydrolysis of the triglycerides by the sodium hydroxide) and shed quite a bit of water weight, so curing is very important in creating a hard, long-lasting, gentle bar of soap. Check here often to see what we've got on the rack and when it'll be ready to use! The images at the bottom of the page are examples of some of our popular batches.
