    Table Sugar to Increase Lather and Bubbles?

    Have any of you ever used regular granulated sugar to increase the lather and bubbles in a soap recipe? If so, did it work well? I like old-fashioned, 100% lard soap, but want to add a little extra to the lather and bubbles without adding other oils or expensive additives.

    Coco glucoside in CP?

    I am wanting to boost the lather in some of my more conditioning recipes that include butters without drying my skin out. I bought Coco Glucoside to try making bubble bars with and I am wondering if anyone has ever tried it in CP. Fearing it will probably overheat, I have not tried it yet.

    Castor Oil: 5% or 10%???

    Hi all! So I'm a little torn when it comes to the castor oil. I absolutely love this oil and what it does for lather and feel. I need opinions and advice about the percentage that goes into a recipe. 5% is good, but I've done as high as 10% and I love that too! Does anyone here think that's too...
