    which soap process is this?

    Hi everyone, thank you very much for taking the time to reply!! I get what @MelissaG and @artemis are saying and why they say that. I didn't realise glycerin would also be listed if it was there as a result of the process, now I know! I am familiar with the name of oils and EO components but...

    Glycerin tracks?

    Thank you so much! I have learnt a lot on this forum too. Thanks so much Obsidian. Yeah I agree.. I thought it didn't look quite like her usual Glycerin Rivers but just had no idea what it was. Yes I use palm oil but I'm experimenting with no-palm but vegan recipes. And thank you Dana89 for...

    Glycerin tracks?

    Hi all, I would like to ask what you think is the cause of the different opacities in the soap at different spots? I've had this happened before a couple of times but this time, it seems to be a circular pattern even though I've only poured the soap and did no swirling. I used this recipe before...

    is moldy soap safe to use?

    Thank you for your replies! I've cut off the top of the soap, will show the sides requested by Susie soon, as I've just transferred those soaps to my bf's place to try and prevent it from re-growing. :)

    is moldy soap safe to use?

    Hi, thank you for your responses! I found out that my another new batch of soap that has just been cured 4-5 weeks has little spots of mold now. See the white/grey fluff spots. I think my home is extra humid because mold has grown on my clothes and stuff before.. sometimes just over a couple...

    is moldy soap safe to use?

    Thank you for the replies! Unfortunately, I dont have access to any pics but it definitely was mold. I came across a previous post asking about mold with replies suggesting that it was soda ash. This was fluffy and pretty gross-looking mold. The recipe is below! It's a pretty classic one...

    Naming isopropyl alcohol in mp soaps

    Hi all, I was wondering if you guys name the isopropyl alcohol in your m&p soap ingredient list? I did usually but I also thought about how quickly it evaporated and probably wouldn't be there anymore really. Do you all list it for using it or list something for it being in your soap? I'm...

    is this right?

    Thank you fuzz-juzz and IrishLass! I used 280gm and 260gm for the soaps in class and at home used 10.5oz (sorry for using different units, trying to get the most rounded number). Cool, I read about gelling but didn't really know when it is considered ungelled, thanks for pointing it out to me...

    is this right?

    Hi efficacious gentleman, nope it is not cured yet, just cut two days ago. But, the ones I cut in the workshop I attended weren't as "soft" on the day of cutting. I don't know how to explain it right.. I used two different molds and with the silicon 6-cube mold, it sticks to the side and is...

    is this right?

    Hi! I finally made my first batch of cp soaps by myself. I did attend a workshop before and all was fine. This time, I tried a supposedly simpler 3 oil recipe (shown in picture) and it turned out softer than I was accustomed to, but I don't have much experience to compare to too. Please tell me...
