    Organic Melt and Pour

    I was looking at the Glory Bee website and I see that they have organic melt and pour bases! It has sorbitol and glycerine and saponified vegetable oils. They also say that some of the ingredients may not be 100 percent organic and they didn't want to abuse their terminology. I thought this was...

    light pomice

    Hi there! Today I found some light pomace for $16.79 a gallon at Gordon Food Service. Is light pomice the best olive oil to soap with? I am really trying to find some less expensive oils and nutrients to work with.

    Does anyone out there use dried or powdered milks? I have. I think it saves money. These days it is so costly to even make soaps. Those that use powdered- is the end result as good as when the liquid is used? I like it.

    I don't know why but I been thinking about making a butter soap. I just love to use milk and creme. Would the soap be a pretty yellow and have a creamy feel to it? Sounds yummy...

    Corn oil

    Since olive oil is so costly I have been playing around with my recipe. Now don't laugh, I have substituted corn oil in it's place. It is supposed to give it a similar trace, which it did. I wonder how healing it will be to my cracked , dry skin. Gimme some feed back! Thank you!

    Melt and pour

    Oh oh! I think my 13 year old son has got the soapin bug! He made some killer not to mention beautiful melt and pours! I think this type of soap really gives artists the ability to be very creative as well as safe. I will have to try to upload some pics at a later date.

    Does anyone out there just love to go into the fridge and see what they can put into their soaps as a skin nourisher? Things like avocado, bananas and so forth? Let me hear your ideas. Thank you!
