    Suppliers in Europe

    We bought quite a lot of stuff from them: Ethically Sourced Natural Oils and Ingredients | Naissance. Absolutely reliable and good service. We ordered around 1200 euro of material. I am looking for a new EU provider since they are based in the UK and now it will become harder to import things...

    Natural fixtators for lye soap

    I like this idea, but how should I do this. Is only blending the EO with this ingredients and adding at the end would be enough? For example, I know that Bentonite is a powder, how will this affect the final product?

    Using PVC as a mold....having a few issues with it

    Using PVC as a mold....having a few issues with it

    We are keeping our soap inside the PVC for a week. The bump is the bottom part, we push from the top towards the bump yes :) I cannot find freezer paper where I live (Italy+Denmark), I know a lot of people are using it and it looks amazing. As plastic, what do you mean exactly? Thanks again...

    Using PVC as a mold....having a few issues with it

    Hello people, Today two posts :D :D After some squared soaps, we decided to try to do some round soaps using the below PVC pipe. We did not have any real problems when we did batches of 500 grams of soap since we were using another pipe to push the soap out. It was not really easy, but we...

    Natural fixtators for lye soap

    Hello lovely people, With my soap formulas I currently use essential oils but I can't seem to make the aroma stay. In the beggining the aroma is really strong when using it, but it I leave the soap curing for a long period of time (3 months or more) the aroma is not there. I know that comercial...

    Thanks again people! We have been trying different ways and have to be honest that all your comments and ideas were extremely helpful and useful.

    Hello people, My second post in this forum, excited :) Together with a friend of mine, we started making some soaps around 2 months ago. We made some CP and HP as well. Now that we are a bit better with the CP, we were wondering when it is the right time to stamp them. We would like to stamp...
