i made my first batch of milk soap. i put the soap in the freezer, then placed it inside the fridge.

i waited about 12 hours from unmolding before i cut the soap. it has been 2 days since i cut it, and it's still soft.

is this normal for a soap placed inside the fridge/freezer?

and i have another batch of soap which is soft. i did not put it in the fridge, but i put a fan next to the mold so it won't gel and overheat.

i used soapcalc, and i used the default 38% water content. these are my first two batch of soap that i did not insulate.

your thoughts are very much appreciated.

Patience, grasshopper. That soap needs 4-6 weeks minimum cure time.
