Keep Your Soap Bar from Melting Away

The bath experience with handmade cold process soap bar is one of the best ways to care for your skin. Senica’s soap bars recipes contain 5% extra oils. These oils turn into glycerin during the soap making process. Glycerin is a humectant that draws moisture to your skin.

A handmade soap bar is great for cleansing and moisturizing the skin but its naturally occurring glycerin content means it needs to be protected from water between uses. Otherwise, you end up with a melted glob of soap. Here are three ways to keep your soap from melting away.

1. Use a soap bag. The soap bag keeps the bar dry between use without the odor buildup common with other types of fibers. It is also doubles as an exfoliator.
