    Lotion , body butter’s & bacteria

    I’m new at making lotion, still in the research stage. I’ve read that lotions must have preservatives in order to avoid bacteria growth. 1. Is there a natural preservative that I’m not seeing? 2. Would body butter grow bacteria seeing that it has no water? What type of body lotion can be made...

    Nope, nothing is wrong with them. that’s how mine comes out also .”, especially if you’re using the lighter oil rather than the dark oil.

    Safe soap cutting tool

    Mom Well... I made the decision by making one, I think a wire cutter is best. Her mom is my best friend so, she would be just fine . 😁

    Safe soap cutting tool

    THank you, I don’t know why I didn’t think about making one. I made my single cutter that’s why I had all the materials. Sometimes it needs a little jog of the memory.

    Safe soap cutting tool

    After your replies, I decided to just make one for the young lady. I had most of the stuff on hand. So I only pay shipping instead of paying 20ish for the cheese cutter. Thank You everyone you your post.

    Safe soap cutting tool

    I may be because MP is cured soap. Cured soap is hard. The wire will stretch and snap sooner than later. Unless there is a wire that will stand up to my Soap that I’m not aware of.

    Safe soap cutting tool

    A friend of mine will be assisting her 13 year old to learn the art of soap making. I want to get her the cutting tool. My options are a knife or a wavy /straight cutter. The knife is scary for me and I’m not sure if the wavy/ straight cutter is a good uption.

    What to mix lye and water in??

    Dollar tree has a jar with a lid. That’s the one I got. It is good to seal if you have to step away for a few minutes.

    100% coconut oil soap/100 coconut milk

    I don’t want a salt bar either. So what should be done if I only have liquid coconut milk? Do you use olive oil for the other 20% of oil?

    100% coconut oil soap/100 coconut milk

    Can you share your tips and tricks for 100% coconut oil and milk cup soap. I’ve done it 100% coconut oil and water but I’ve read it tends to over heat because of the sugar content. Any other suggestions would be great. Obsidian gave me her tips in on this topic. So I just wanted to include...
