    HELP - My Soap Has an Oil Pool!

    Did anyone run that recipe through a calculator? If it’s not a safe recipe to start with, rebatching won’t help. (I’ll see if I have time tonight to do that)

    Is it possible... to make soap with only goat milk as the fat?

    Ok... So, IS it possible to make soap out of only fresh frozen goat milk and lye? I attempted the other day, but the lye was WAY off. I'm just wondering if it is indeed possible, or if I'm just wasting my time and ingredients experimenting. I used the soapcalc lye calculator. I've got the...

    Large batch goat milk soap - preventing gel and/or discoloration

Understandably, this volume causes the soap to insulate itself and start to gel in the middle. I know gel isn’t a bad thing, but in our case, it...

    Hi, I've been making goat milk soap using 38% of the oils as my milk amount. I've been doing reading on using lye concentration instead. I was using 38% of the oils as the amount because I figured goat milk is actually an ingredient for me and I want there to be lots of it. I do the frozen...

    Salt water in soap

    So I am interested in making a batch, but instead of making a regular salt bar, I would like to replace water with saltwater, anyone do this? I am wondering how much salt to add to the water? I also do a split with water/goat milk and wondering if the salt would affect the milk. Thanks Heidi
