Hello, I have spent the last year or so searching for a melt and pour base recipe that works. I have also read through a lot of this forum and have seen discussions about making melt and pour base from scratch. I couldn't find any recent discussions so wondered if anyone had had any success with a recipe they would like to share. Originally I tried a recipe that used glycerin, propylene glycol and sugar water but to this day, 8 months later, I can squish it between my fingers it is so soft. I have Carolyn Failor's book but don't have access to myristic acid or sodium lactate where I live (I can access most other stuff, including TEA). I have a very basic recipe that I got from the web and have seen mentioned in other threads on this site: Castor Oil 144 grams Coconut Oil 144 grams Palm Oil 144 grams Stearic Acid 18 grams Distilled Water 160 grams Lye 66.04 grams After Cook: 450 grams Glycerin This glycerin amount is 100% of the oil weight. As I live in a tropical climate, I reduced the amount to 50% of the total oil weight. I found it didn't remelt well unless I added propylene glycol at about 30% of the weight of the soap being remelted. The soap was really nice and had a lovely natural fragrance but because of the humidity where I live it sweated to the point of being completely wet. I am wondering if I can reduce the glycerin to much less (maybe around 10%?). I should stress I'm not interested in a transparent soap. I make a lot of body care products and would like to be able to make a matching soap when giving as a gift (I don't sell anything I make). I would actually like to try to make a goats milk version once I can get the basic formula right. Does anyone have any suggestions for a low sweat melt and pour base? Many thanks, Mel.
