The method entails the following steps: contacting the soap bar with a stripping fluid at a temperature above a softening point of said soap and at sufficient pressure to cause any existing soap layer to be stripped from any surfaces of said structural core; placing said structural core in a pool of soap composition in a liquid phase and covering at least one surface of said structural core with said soap composition; and cooling said soap composition to form the solid layer of said soap over at least one surface of the structural core.
