Oh my ~~I did not even see this thread until today! Wow Lindy, thank you so much for sharing another amazing tutorial! I am still loving and enjoying my goatmilk lotion! You must have spent a lot of time taking pictures, writing the post and uploading them all! Thank you for your time to do everything for us! I've never made cream soap before, but I must try it now. I am so excited and I cannot wait to get all of my ingredients. Thank you, with a big hug !

Seven - Yes you can add more water and whip again, but be very careful with how much water. Cream Soap is best left as long as possible. 6 months is not unreasonable - I have some that is 3 years old and it is amazing and such a pretty pearly colour. (I kept some to watch as it ages to see what it's like).

Ellacho - thank you, I enjoyed making the tutorial.

Wow ~ Lindy, you're amazing! Great tutorial. It's very easy to follow and understand your steps. I've made many batches of HP LS but no cream soap yet so it's going on my to-do list. That darn list just keeps getting longer, lol. Thank you so much for sharing and doing such a great job teaching!

You are welcome. Cream soap becomes very addicting.... the only drawback is the cure (rot) time.

I don't know how I missed this thread either but I will definitely try this soon. I do have to ask, why steric as the super cream? Could I sub something like coco butter or shea? I'm not so great with numbers, what is the ratio of NaOH to KoH? I will most likely replace the almond oil with avocado.

Stearic Acid is the very base of the recipe. Everything else builds from there. Supercream is different from superfat so you really can't switch it out.
