If your talking about growing older, well I'll debate you on that. But this time I'm talking about soap! I have been a soapmaker for over a decade. And with that being said.... I have made A LOT of soap! Always going through the experimentation stage, I can tell you I have hundreds of recipes and made tens of 1000's of bars. In my first few years I gave away a lot of soap, to try to gauge opinions. But I always saved a few bars. I have hundred's of bars of soap that frankly are very very old. I have every soap documented in Soapmaker 3 and know exactly what is in each one. Sooooo. today I tried about 50 bars of soap. ( I have the cleanest hands) and notes that I originally made say some were good, some were bad and some were so so. Well they are a pretty good now! Some spectacular and many that I'm in love with that I didn't like so much before. The ones I tested are 6-10 years old! We all know that the longer the cure, the better the soap. But this is extreme aging! What I notice is incredibly affected is the lather. Bubbly, creamy and rich. And my skin feels fantastic. I'm going to make a few of them again so I have a real test to compare to at an 8 week cure. I'm not suggesting that you save all you soap for years but this is absolute proof that the results are spectacular. As a side note - Some of the fragrance really held well. Thanks for reading!
