Hence the vacuum sealed bags.

The freezer (and the refrigerator to an extent) runs an auto defrost cycle that removes moisture. Part of the "freezer burn" phenomenon.
Shave yourself.

Thats actually a pretty good idea!

I think you ought to buy a tin of the CO2 that you spray into the head space of open wine bottles you aren't finishing right away and then, prior to sealing the tubs, open them and carefully lay a blanket of inert gas(CO2) over the surface of the soap displacing the oxygen then carefully replace the lids and vacuum seal the tubs. I'm not sure if this will better preserve your soap but it just sounds like the sort of overkill that has to provide some benefit right? Big Grin

This is the same treatment my beer growlers get from the bottles shop. Push out the oxygen before sealing. But that is way over my head... I'm not going to freeze though. I think that might change the consistency after thawing.

Sleeper , I'm not sure it would change the consistency - I live in Canada and during the winter months packages that I receive are usually frozen solid and I haven't noticed any detrimental effect compared to soaps that I order in the summer months. I generally won't order any liquids that will freeze especially in glass bottles during the winter months. Experience has taught me that can be a real mess.
