The purpose of embalming is to preserve a dead body from natural decomposition and restore a natural appearance. Embalming is required whenever a body will be viewed publicly, when a body must be held without refrigeration, or when a body will be shipped on an airline. Immediately upon death, various enzymes and bacteria begin to break down a corpse. Many of these bacteria produce toxins that break down tissue and gasses that cause extreme swelling. Refrigeration slows down this process as does embalming, so the sooner the embalming is done, the better. Embalming chemicals work to kill these bacteria and arrest the enzymes. Even if perfectly embalmed, every body will sooner or later decompose. How soon depends on the quality of embalming, burial container and burial location
