I have used cocoons in soap for several years. I add 1-2 cocoons to a 6 lb batch.

Just an update. I got my cocoons today and they are pristine clean. My local supplier is much more expensive and I have to remove the pupae. These also have no chemical smell as some from China do. Took 2 weeks to get to me in So Cal. Above I mentioned I have used cocoons for several years at 1-2 per 6 lb batch. I should mention since I master batch my lye by the gallon I add in 10-14 cocoons per gallon so it is not exact how many I use. They have to be dissolve in hot lye and is better to cut them in at least quarters in order to get them to dissolve easier. I was paying $28 for 100, these were $17 for 200. Just put another 200 in my cart

LOL

This is exactly why Asian love pointy nose that Caucasian have, Caucasian love tanned skin, southeast Asian or India Indian prefer lighter skin tone...
(I'm Taiwanese, this is what I have observed how aesthetic of each region / race differs ) most of us want something we don't have...

Is the new cocoons from alieExpress china? Even if it is mailed via air, the price still beats So Cal.?

These are the ones I ordered. They are super clean with no chemical odor
Just dissolved 15 of them in my gallon of lye I just batched.
