    My first shaving soap is a success!

    Hi All! Well after a very long absence from this forum ( too long a story ) I'm happy to be back. I wanted to make some shave soap and even though I have read this thread many many times over the years and made many many batches of it. Since I haven't made any soap at all in almost 2 years, I...

    This makes me cringe!

    There is alot going on here. But there isn't much that anyone can do but her. First she has no gloves. 2nd yes she is a mess but lots of ppl make a mess. She's the one that has to clean it up. More work for her and he equipment ( molds) need to be cleaned up. But more importantly - if she sells...

    Bath bombs/shower melts vs humidity?

    My cure for this problem is a dehumidifier and after they are rock hard I package them. I do not make bath bombs but I make bubble bars which the same thing happens.

    Alpaca Fibre in Soap?

    I have done it but it doesn't dissolve well. Certainly not like silk does. I felt soap so of course I tried it with the Alpaca I have and I never did it again. Im not sure of the benefit but I wasn't happy with it not dissolving well.

    SoapRecipe

    It comes with time. Many of us have years in this craft. Your not going to learn all you need to know just from knowing the FA profiles. Making lots of soap and continuing to learn through others will eventually reap the rewards. Im sure that anyone here will tell you we are always learning...

    SoapRecipe

    it is the only way to learn. But dont make online recipes. Learn the fatty acid profiles and make your own recipes to try. You will be able to understand better what each oil brings to the soap. It takes many years of formulating and testing to figure ou what works. After over a decade of...

    Who says Aging isn't good?

    I don’t use many butters normally. More so on newer soap recipes. So can’t speak to those right now. But the faves of the bunch were over 50% lard, olive , coconut and avocado. I’ll have a better sense of it when I really analyze this endeavor. I’ll report back.

    Who says Aging isn't good?

    That’s what I was saying. The men’s scents!!! Woodsy! And yes the lather so bubbly, creamy and gentle. I’m making lots of soap to put away with scents that can handle it lol. The beauty of being a long term soap maker. We get to enjoy these a decade later. The newbies have a long way to go lol...

    Who says Aging isn't good?

    Who says Aging isn't good?

    If your talking about growing older, well I'll debate you on that. But this time I'm talking about soap! I have been a soapmaker for over a decade. And with that being said.... I have made A LOT of soap! Always going through the experimentation stage, I can tell you I have hundreds of recipes...
