I'm sure it will be worth the wait, once I find a source.

Oh, baking soda, for Pete's sake! Thanks! I think I know where I can find that.

Health food stores or places like Bulk Barn that sell stuff in large quantities have it much cheaper than buying the actual product in a box. I think I paid 0.17$ per 100G.

I have used it and found that it doesn't foam as much as SLS, but alot of my customers don't want SLS and this is an alternative.
Thank you! I am so happy to find another alternative. I found this little article that I thought was a good read since I am new to all this and the goal of making my own soap was to exclude harsh chemicals. http://slibeauty.wordpress.com/2010/...-sulfoacetate/
