What is curing?

Curing is the process in which the soap is cut into bars and allowed to sit in a place without humidity and that has free air flow. The average curing time is 4-6 weeks but can be longer depending on personal preference and the recipe used. This is to allow bars to harden, lose excess moisture, and to become milder on the skin. The longer the bar cures the gentler, richer, and creamier the lather becomes.
