Our hand-crafted bar soaps are made in small batches to ensure that each one is fresh and unique just for you. After we cut them we let them cure in a warm, dark place for six weeks until they are ready for you to use. Soap is like wine or cheese – it gets better with age, so even though we cure them for a long time so they’re ready to use when you buy them, they will continue to get harder (and therefore last longer) as they get older. So don’t be afraid to use these soaps as air fresheners in your home or car for awhile before getting them wet – they won’t go bad, they’ll just get better! Keep these soaps well-drained and they will last a long time.
