Making bars last longer

Chunky-cut: Our chunky-cut bars are 28.4mm thick.  By cutting bars thicker they wear slower and last longer.  Regular bars are 25mm.

Slow-cured: Curing is the process of drying a soap bar.  Drier bars are more resistant to wear from water, and they dry faster after exposure to water.  This means they last longer and soap isn't as mushy.  Different ranges require different curing times, and the time of year affects the cure time also.  

Gelled: A gelled soap is one that has been allowed to heat up in the mould to a temperature where the soap melts.  This melted soap forms a unique crystal structure that is naturally more resistant to water.
