    I found a box that had soap from 5 years ago.....no scent to speak of really, but boy does it lather!!!

    Interesting...
    Do you think it is the composition of the soap that makes it lather more or is it the curing time?

    I think the recipe was 25% coconut oil, 25% palm oil, 25% olive oil and 25% lard so it could be the recipe was good, but the hardness and total lack of moisture is probably the real key to the lather.

    The longer the soap sits, the more moisture is evaporated from it. The bar is harder, lasting a long longer and the lather is better.

    Even though I use a pretty heavy liquid discount in my soap recipe, I allow them to sit at least 6 weeks after unmolding before wrapping for sale.

    Customers appreciate that the bars last longer than a lot of other soaps they bought from other soapmakers. Course, I have a longer time between purchases of my repeat customers, but I keep increasing the number of repeat customers I have!
