I'm not sure if this is what this is, because I've never had it happen before. My cut CP soap bars still feel wet. Like I can actually see and feel the dewyness on my hand. What would cause that?

Right here, silly!
Is it very humid right now where you live? That's one of the things that can cause sweating. The usual remedy is to place the soap in a room with a dehumidifier.

How old is your soap, and did you gel? Sometimes a soap will sweat due to becoming overheated during gel. Usually when this kind of sweating happens, the liquid will absorb back in within a few days.

Also- salt soaps are prone to sweating, too, especially if you live in a highly humid area. A dehumidifier is the remedy for that.

It's not humid at all but it did gel. In fact it got really hot and cracked a little on top.

Actually I think it's ok now, it seems to have stopped
I would think that it got overheated during the gel and that caused the oozing. Like the previous person said it should re-absorb.
