The world of soap is a fascinating one! There are many different kinds of soap, and many different ways to make them but here at The Handmade Soap Company our bars of soap are made using the ‘cold process’.
This basically means when we make make soap we allow the natural chemical reaction between the base and acid to take place, without adding heat. When the mixture is ready it’s poured into wooden molds and later cut by hand into bars. These bars must then be left to dry (or cure) for six weeks before they can be sold.
It’s a pretty time consuming affair! However the benefits of slowing down are you get great smelling natural soap that cleans as well as moisturizes. Definitely worth it!
