There is a Wikipedia article that discusses Buddhists that are supposedly incorrupt (despite the article title, the article states they seem preserved "without any traces of deliberate mummification").

The apparent existence of incorrupt bodies from outside Christianity is one reason incorruptibility is no longer considered a miracle for purposes of canonization.

That's interesting, I didn't know that.
I wonder if this has ever been looked in to scientifically. I can fathom how a body locked in an air-tight crypt under ground may deteriorate slowly or not at all...but many incorruptables were not interred like that. I wonder how that works...

My understanding is that there is no scientific explanation, there were investigation for St. Bernadette or St Catherine Laboure
