To properly care for your soap + extend its shelf life, dry between uses on a natural soap saver or draining soap dish.  Do not let the soap sit in water.

Glycerin + Moist Soap . . .

Due to a high content of natural humectants (like glycerin, sugar, honey, etc.), a quality conditioning bar of handmade soap will often “sweat” in humid weather.  Humectants draw “moisture” from the air onto itself.  In skin care “moisture” is a good thing!  If your soap gets a little damp, it’s OK to use; it’s just the glycerin + other humectants doing their job.  When the weather clears the soap will dry + return to normal.  Keep unused soap in a dry place, like a drawer.

While we keep our recipes consistent, the beauty of handcrafted soap is that no two bars are the same.  The color + design can vary from batch-to-batch + bar-to-bar . . .
