What is curing? And why does it take so long?


After blending the oils and lye-water together it goes through a chemical process called saponification. Saponification takes time. 4 weeks is recommended to process all of the lye with the oils to make soaps. Lye is a caustic substance that can be dangerous if not properly cured. This time is also used to allow moisture to escape, leaving a harder, longer-lasting bar.




What does Kaolin Clay do?


Kaolin Clay is an addititive used to create 'slip' in the soap. This allows it to move easier along your skin. Kaolin Clay is often used in shaving soaps in order to help the razor glide across the skin.
