    Oily Soap

    Hello everyone, I recently made a batch of soap and I noticed some of my lye had harden at the bottom of my container causing a lye shortage. The soap did saponify but it is really oily and soft because there wasn’t enough lye for all of the oil. I took it out of the mold and cut it and I am...

    Soap is not good for your skin

    Hi, I'm new to soap making and while I really enjoy the whole process and I'm very excited about soap making, I did a lot of research about how effective and healthy soap is. My question was, is it really that good on your skin? Does it worth the money and the time? Because if there are better...

    Help! I can't stop making soap!!!

    It's a slippery slope to say the least. I started watching my wife create these beautiful works of art that led me to follow suit. Now.... I can't stop! I rush home from work everyday to see if my loaf is ready to be removed from my mold just so I could pour another lol. Anyhow, excited to be...

    SoapCalc and what about temperature of oils and lye while mixing?

    Dear all, I try to find myself in the soapCalc ( it's a bit of rocket science for beginners :oops:). I stick to the rules that are explained on the website however I couldn't find any information about at what temperature I should mix lye and oils. I'm testing lots of recipes at this moment...

    What kind of a printer and paper for labels?

    I would like to start printing labels for my soap instead of handwriting labels. In which direction I should look ? Of course I would like to have my labels in colour . I don't mind regular paper however I would like to have possibilities to print on the sticker paper. I tried to look at it in...

    Help! What are these white bits?!

    Hello Everyone, Newbie here, I'm hoping someone could help me solve what this is (and excuse my naivety!): I've been making MP soap and love the process. I usually do base + fragrance oil + dye and leave them in the mould overnight before taking them out. Then it's packaged in a plastic...

    I made Onion Aloe Vera Soap

    And I'm GLAD I did. I make most of my soap from tallow rendered during cooking for the "To Live Crew", and foods I eat. Any way I over processed my hair and it broke clean off at the scalp😳 I learned onion juice due to its high sulfur content would help my hair grow back stronger and faster, and...

    Melt and Pour Colours

    Hello Does anyone use Zenicolor? I’m currently using Zenicolor 5 to colour my soaps and I’m starting to run out of some of the tubes. I’ve been looking at other options in the zenicolor range (zenicolor solo because I don’t use all colours in the zenicolor 5 pack). How does this compare to the...

    Huge soleseif error I don't know how I can fix.

    Earlier this week, I created a modified version of a recipe I've already made before. A lard/OO/CO76/Castor (%: 50/30/15/5). I include a photo of my printed recipe with notes, because it illustrates the glaring mistake I made that I didn't see until just now. My oil percentages (amounts) are ALL...
