    A soap as a drug? From a local soap maker.

    Haha not really. It was too soft and I could see the soap was just melting away at one time use. Definitely MP soaps with some herbal additives. :( Not worth $15. The thing is the company is in United States, soaps are sold from their location, not dropshipped from Korea. The owner said she...

    A soap as a drug? From a local soap maker.

    Ahhhh... But even though the soaps are imported from Korea, they are still required to follow FDA regulations since the sales occur in United States, right? No offense to any Korean people, I'm native Korean too. It's just... I cannot believe these people put out that 'cure for diseases' card...

    A soap as a drug? From a local soap maker.

    I think this company is in United States. It's just not in English, they are in California. Hmmm That is exactly what I have known and believed. Pheww. I don't know how these people can claim the cure of diseases. :(

    Soap for Eczema

    My kid has eczema, we've been using all kids of soaps and herb soaps herbal salt... Nothing really doesn't seem to cure him but, using natural soap does little help due to less ingredients he gets on his skin. But what really helps him is the lotion. Basic lotion with oatmeal collaterals 2-3%...

    Best Chelator/anti DOS ingredients

    I read a thread on using a vinegar for acid trick for chelator, can we use a lemom juice or lime juice as well? Lemon juice has a citric acid, containing 1.44 and 1.38 g/oz, much less than citric acid itself but easy to buy from grocery stores. But the result would be inaccurate since we don't...

    How can you avoid inhaling Lye fumes?

    I use iced water all the time to avoid coughing too! It's so easy now to use sodium hydroxide now. Temp doesn't drop that low anyway, iced water is recommended

    How do I get my soap to harden in the mold

    Maybe the soap batch didn't get to emulsion? I had that one time and it was too soft even after two days. Did you see the trace? How long has the soap been in the mold?

    Pouring Temperature.

    Your design is very cute! And I agree with you, lower than 130 F tents to get solidified before I even try to pour. I try to keep the temperature around 140-160 too
