Prevent Splits & Edge Curls

Question:

We are having a small problem with our Soap Shaper the soap splits and curls at the edges. Do you know how we can prevent this?

Answer:

It could be that your Soap Shaper Mold is turned around the wrong way. There is a slight taper in the mold shape that reduces the size of the soap as it exits the mold shape. The narrowest end goes out.

The problem could be that it is not ground enough. When you grind it up, spritz it with water as you grind. You don’t want it extremely soft but the particles must be thoroughly incorporated and blended. Sometimes when the soap is very hard and old you have to run it through the grinder twice.
