Hello all,
Do you think CP soap will continue to cure if wrapped in 100% cotton? I'm in a situation where I have only 3 weeks to cure my soaps before wrapping them, then probably around 2 more weeks before giving them for use. I know at 3 weeks soap is not at its mildest and that is why I am concerned. I've been searching how to speed up curing time - water discount, dehumidifier, fan, but there is nothing I can do regarding the Ph.
I will appreciate your advice!

P.S. Olive oil is 25%.

I don't think that you can speed up the cure to mildness. You can use a sodium lactate or water discount to get a harder bar.

Yes they will continue to cure although probably at a slight slower rate. You may find your wrapping loosens up with the drying and curing time, which is why I shrink wrap. When the shrink wrap loosens I just have to hit them with the heat gun to tighten them up
