    What OO do you use for your soap?

    I’ve been using EVOO and it works well but leaves a strong tint to the batter. I haven’t tried mixing titanium dioxide or any other ingredient yet but what OO would you guys suggest which is best for making soap without adding so much tint?

    Help! White streaks/spots in soap

    Hello everyone! I’ve been making soap for a few months now, and I keep getting batches with white spots on them. I think it’s either titanium dioxide or kaolin clay. Any ideas? How can I prevent it in the future? Thanks In advance!

    Will Rebatching Help with Clumpy Titanium Dioxide?

    Hello all, For the first time, I'm considering rebatching some soap, but I want to be sure it will solve the problem before I do so. I made a batch of cold process coffee soap and was pretty happy - it actually smells like coffee and cocoa butter. Unfortunately, I not only didn't use...
