I find that wood must be allowed to move.
If you cover the inside with epoxy you are asking for trouble. (although this might not be a big deal with pine)
Eastern red ceder has a very small movement coefficient and would be a good choice (it’s also easy to carve)
I would finish with linseed oil (it is not as durable but easy to repair, other finishes will not hold up long either but must be removed before they ban be restored, also oil does not peel)
Also consider that no finish is a good option for a soap mold

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
