Not for nothing but for someone who wants to learn, you certainly are ignoring any advice given to you.You’re 100% correct. I want to learn the how and why. That’s the point I’m trying to make. I used the Soaping101 recipe for cream soap successfully. However, the lady who wants a batch of cream soap is allergic to coconut oil. I am unable to alter the recipe because I don’t understand how to formulate for cream soap. I can use another oil but does that mean I need to change the amounts of Stearic acid and glycerin used? If so, do I need to increase it or lower it? For oils that I have at home and want to use to make cream soap, that are not the ones in the recipes I’ve used, what adjustments need to be made. Forgive me for asking for help. Forgive me for desiring to read a text to help me understand. I’m not looking for shortcuts. To those who responded in love and positivity, I appreciate that. You have no idea what I’m going through and how simply making soap for folks is a ministry to them and myself. To those who are critical and judgmental, assuming to know what my intentions are, don’t worry I’ll be terminating my membership to this forum. It feels toxic after just a few days and I need less of that. To all on this forum, may God bless you richly in every area of life now and throughout 2022.
Did you even read the tutorial and all of the threads on here? TBH, there’s most likely more info on here than in the book you are so desperately set on reading. I mean, in the book, there won’t be questions and answers. Ya know??
I don’t think anyone is assuming anything other than you don’t have much experience and/or knowledge of soap making. That is what YOU said. You could also look up thread on shave soaps. They may also have info that can help you formulate.
Maybe, just maybe, the reason there is so little information about cream soaps is that they’re really not that good. Just a possibility. I do know there is a FB group dedicated to cream soap makers, but I was disappointed in that as well as the group has very little activity. You basically are going to need to dig a little deeper and read a lot more. Good luck to you.
