    How to get bright vibrant bath bombs

    If you want vibrant bombs, I would go for lakes or dyes instead of neons especially if you intend to sell them. You don't need batch certified lakes/dyes if they're just for personal use/gifting but all neons I've seen are for soap only not cosmetic use.

    A few of my latest

    I haven't made much soap lately because I have a huge stockpile that I need to unload. The spearmint-eucalyptus batch was a special order so more than half of it is already spoken for. The calamine batch was an experiment in making my own calamine powder (using zinc + iron oxide) plus I just...

    Peak Candle Closing

    Have you tried Fragrancebuddy's Wild Mountain Honey? It's pretty good and sticks like glue at .5oz PPO. It's my 2nd favorite honey FO after Elements B&B's L'Occitane Honey dupe. I'm also bummed about Peak closing . . . I really liked their Blackberry Tea FO.

    Lotion with preservative has orange spots around the edges - bacteria apparently!

    You could try one of these test kits from Lotioncrafter and possibly figure out what your contaminant is

    Coffee infused oil

    You could try HP and save your coffee-infused oil for the superfat. That's probably the only way any scent will survive the lye monster.

    face scrub recipes please?

    I highly recommend IrishLass' method for making liquid soap! Don't have to worry about neutralizing excess lye or cooking your paste to death. I do a 3% SF for mine.

    face scrub recipes please?

    Just wanted to throw out a suggestion. Go back and study the ingredient list for the St Ives scrub. Notice the main ingredient is water and that's what is missing from the OP's recipe. I would omit the hard oils and add some water which should reduce the heavy, greasy feeling and also allow...

    Pineapple Cilantro Coming

    Awesome! I love the pineapple cilantro bars you shared with me awhile back. Sign me up for 1lb and PM me with payment info once you know the total price.

    Trying to find a soap mold like this...

    These are similar but not an exact copy of the Lush version Brambleberry has one too

    So I received this certified letter in the mail yesterday...

    I'm not a lawyer and don't play one on TV. The only similarities I see between their packaging and yours is the font . . . along with your white circle in the upper right corner vs their black circle in the upper right corner. Is that seriously enough to meet the criteria for a trade dress...

    Calling all Peeps. Please weigh in.

    How about 007? That makes me think of a dashing, sophisticated chick-magnet of a man. I'm with BG on thinking Sugar Daddy sounds a bit skeevy.

    Emu Oil $34/lb.

    Earlene - ask your doc about Pennsaid . . . it's the same active ingredient as Voltaren but with DMSO so it penetrates better. Sorry for the thread hijack Zany.
