Well, the incorruptible part does not mean life like or the entire body. Martyrs for example are a case where pieces of them have remained incorrupt.

Also, for canonization, they take relics. I was shocked when I read how they did it (at least, in the past). Sometimes it costs an arm or a leg, even for the incorrupt.
