    Hello from the Netherlands

    I am about to discover that and I will tell you as soon as I can. Not really. I feel like I'm illegal, guilty and start blabbering 'I did it!' to everything that I read or see on the news.

    Hello from the Netherlands

    Hi Amy, I'm from Italy and I too make my soap and just like @Luriertjie I can confirm that any handcraft soap at least in Italy is equated to a cosmetic product therefore needs to be tested in lab and registered according to the Reg. UE n° 1223/2009 as Product information file registry. All the...

    Entry Thread for the March 2022 SMF Challenge - Column Pour

    Your video is really nice. I need to ask: how do you get that enviable runny batter? I can never get my batter runny and I always have to rush pouring it into my mold. Should I ask the question in another thread?

    Olive Oil Pomace vs EVOO

    I too use EVOO in all my oils because I am an olive oil producer in Italy and find that olive oil bars tend to get a lot harder (and bubblier) with long cure. The yellowish colour tends to fade over time. Meaning months and years. I have some bars of EVOO soap made up to 5 years ago or more...

    Adding silk at .11 per cent of the weight of the batch of soap

    Linne, another question while we are on it. I was told that you can't ever heat up your lye solution to bring it back to mixing temperature with the oils. I suppose that is the case of masterbatching: if I don't use up all the masterbatch in one go and my solution cools down, I cannot keep it...

    Adding silk at .11 per cent of the weight of the batch of soap

    Hello Linne1gi, I was reading about the properties that silk adds to the soap in this forum and stumbled upon yours. I am fairly new in this forum and always made soaps using a soap calc, deciding my lye concentration and followed the sap values of each oil included in my recipe accordingly. I...
