How to care for natural soap

By | February 16, 2021

To care for your natural soap, place it in a dish or caddy that drains water and stand the soap upright, as shown below. The soap can even be flipped upside down for drying. The more surface area exposed to dry in between uses, the longer the soap will last.

Natural soap retains glycerin, a by-product of the soap-making process. Glycerin is the clear gel seen when the soap is exposed to water. If the soap is left lying in water or not allowed to dry in between uses, it will dissolve.

Glycerin is considered a healthy, natural moisturizer that can be beneficial to our skin. Most commercial companies remove the glycerin to speed up the drying process. I’ve added beeswax to help maintain hardness in the soap.
