    HP soap with sugar scrub

    Hello everyone. I make HP soaps and I was trying to experiment with sugar and making a sugar scrub soap. I made sure my soap was cooled down to at least 170F, but my sugar seemed to still melt. I'm not sure if it was the heat or the liquid. Is there a foolproof way to add sugar to make a scrub...

    HP Honey Soap Blunder....

    So, I'm making some hp honey oatmeal soap, and I decided to add my honey at the beginning of my cook instead of at the end as I usually do. It's been in there about 30 mins and it's still a separated mess. Give it to me straight - is this batch doomed? :oops:

    Is there a natural vanilla fragrance for HP?

    I'm in desperate need for a way to make vanilla soap. I don't trust anything labeled vanilla EO because I don't believe it exists. I've also read that vanilla extract only lasts a while until the scent fades. Is there anyway to get the vanilla smell without using fragrance oil? I'm not saying...

    15% sf still drying out my skin!

    Hi. I started with 6-7% superfat months ago and have moved all the way up to 15%. None of it makes a difference. It still dries out my face. I do the HP method, and I wait until my ph paper is the color of 8-9. I use essential oils for fragrance, and even when I lower the coconut oil down to 20...

    HP Embed Separated

    I've been doing hot process for some time now. I decided it was time to branch out and experiment with some embeds. The recipe for both the embed and base were the same except for the additives. One had Spirulina and Rosemary EO and was made 3 days in advanced. The main part of the soap had...

I used two tbsp. of honey, 2 tbsp. oatmeal, 1/4 calendula blossoms, and about 2 tbsp. of vanilla bean paste. The milk was frozen, but the mixture...

    Using beer as your liquid

    Hi everyone! I am fairly new here and have been making soap for about 4 months now, both bar and liquid, so I am no where near a expert! I have been reading some recipes where they are using beer as the liquid. My question is; what benefits are there from using beer in your soap? I am in need...
