Thank you so much for the tutorial!! I have to ask though... any thoughts on GM as part of the water? Is it possible? Will it turn brown or just off white like CP?

Also wondering if the total water amount listed in the first post includes the extra you put in to make it thinner (pumpable) in the end, or if that amount is in addition to the first number listed.

You're welcome everyone.

There are 2 schools of thought on the preservative debate. Some believe that preservative is absolutely necessary some say that it is soap and the environment of soap does not allow for bacteria or mold. So you need to decide for yourself. I personally don't believe that it needs preservative even though once (in 4 years) I had a problem. After studying what happened I have decided that it was an aberration caused by condensation so I am back to believing preservative is not needed.

But you need to make your own decision based on your own research.

Goat Milk is fine in your Cream Soap as long as it is added prior to saponification being completed so I would add it just after you add the lye. You will have to chunk it in.

I just want to be clear on this.. lol. I'm sorry for all the questions!

As a portion of the initial water amount? Like you would in CP if you don't want to burn the milk? Or as additional liquid? You don't think you could mix it with the lye/water?

You could put it in with your lye same as CP.

Anyone have a cheap source of small amounts of kaolin clay?

*EDIT* Nevermind. Found some online for really cheap.

thank you so much for the tute Lindy. i've made my 1st cream soap around 2 months ago. question, can i whip it again and add water at this stage? it's a bit drying on my skin, so i'm also thinking, perhaps adding a bit more glycerin?
