    BTMS-80 replacing BTMS-50

    Hi, For all my conditioner bars, I use 40% BTMS-50 and 20% Cetyl alcohol, but now I can only find BTMS-80, so I think my bar would not look that hard. I guess I need more Cetyl alcohol to harden the bar. What would my new proportion be?

    There is one more recipe: Solid conditioner bars BTMS is 25 and I have 50 so I guess I can use half of the original proportion and fill the rest with Cetly alcohol?

    M&P base for shampoo bar issues

    Tthanks Megan, I only have two SCI recipes and use white clay, which I was told not to use it at a high concentration (my recipe says 19.5gr out of 30gr total). So it looks quite dry, but it cleans better than the stephenson soap. I'll give it SCI another try!

    M&P base for shampoo bar issues

    Hi, I have been using Stephensons SS base from some time now and though it doesn't makes so much foam, it does work for me, but I've had some issues with some bars: After taking out of the mold, I usually store them in a plastic box, and many stay there some days on good conditions. But some...

    M&P Rice soap recipe questions

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I had no expectations that it would look like a pudding :) but a kind of homage to it. Actually it uses rice and milk but I still don't know how to use milk. Cinnamon and orange and even coconuts (even cloves) are for decoration and flavor on top... anyways... I'm...

    Hi, The question is: Can I add aroma to an already made glycerine soap bar? I make 2 kg of soap the other day and bought 30ml of aroma, which I later found it was half the minimum recommended by the person who taught me. The soap is half ground oatmeal and half ground cocoa. The soap doesn't...
