    Collecting Sales Tax

    Find a cart with a built in tax functionality. If you ship out of state you don't generally have to pay tax on it is my understanding so unless you get a majority of sales from in state you could just skip over the taxes or take a bite on the profit of the bar. I know for myself seeing an added...

    Concern using oxides or micas?

    I can't speak to mica's though from my understanding they are inert and as long as you have cosmetic grade you shouldn't have an impurity issues. But human kind has been using oxides for colorants for thousands of years so they are fairly well put to the stress test of time and just about every...

    New & a Few Q (newb soaper)

    I just intend to get a large amount of supplies to save on bulk purchases and do small batches (1-2lb) it was my understanding from what I have read it's better to work in larger batches as it helps with consistency issues that vary from product to product/scale miss weight's. Plus with at a...

    New & a Few Q (newb soaper)

    Thank you for the link a good thing to think over but doesn't really offer any information on starting any process or how to go about it. I don't tend to drop a project once I pick it up and I've been into back yard chemistry for a bit and even have a good bit of bulk sodium hydroxide on hand. I...

    New & a Few Q (newb soaper)

    Hello I was looking to take up a project with my wife that we could also make a return on selling it through ebay, church, ect.
