    Can you use CP soap as a base for M&P?

    Hi all! I was wondering if you could just make a generic CP soap with very good bubbles and lather, for example 90%Coconut oil, 10% Castor Oil, and some sugar, but NO superfatting, and then just melt it and add 5% of oils purely for conditioning, for example Shea Butter and Olive oil. Would it...

    Butterfly Swirl

My design came through on enough bars to make it worth the effort LOL I used Atomic Orange, Love and Sunshine, and Titanium Dioxide from Nurture, and the scent is Awaken by Nurture. I call this bar Hello Sunshine! One of my best sellers with a new design...

    My first attempt at a Cosmic Swirl didn't turn out very cosmic. This was my second Tomato soap made with red tomato paste or tomato sauce. Plain batter was pale beige; red oxide, green mica for color. Dragon's Blood FO.

    Soap PH level

    Hello everyone, What is your experience with soap PH? How much does it matter and how does it influence the soap? Also, do you find that shampoo bars should have a different PH than body soap bars? And how do you measure PH? If the water is harder, has a different PH and also the resunting...

    Curing soap - the proof sure is in the pudding!

    This will be perhaps a bit of a long read, and I understand if you can`t be bothered. But I just want to give you the background of why I felt so happy about this experience! And please understand, this is not a post to pat myself on the back, but I really wanted to add to what the above title...

    Tallow and My Husband

    So, first a short back story. I've only recently gotten back into soap making and found a recipe for soap using tallow that I REALLY wanted to try. I got in touch with a local butcher to see if they had any tallow I could render and was told that, yes, they have it but they also have rendered...

    Can You Identify The Soap Mold Used?

    I tried to do a reverse image search on Google, but that just gave a list of sites that use it as a stock photo, not sites that may sell the mold. I don't even know what you would call the shape other than a 'rounded rectangle'. Searching that won't get me anywhere either, I promise you.

    What's the best weight for sample soap?

    I want to make oval-shaped sample versions of my full-size bars of soap, but the soap mold I want to use stated that the soap cavities were 104g each. This translates to about 3.6oz! My full-size bars of soap are going to be 4oz, so the weight of the sample soap needs to be much less than 3.6oz...
