i travelled all over london and the only glycerin i found came in a bottled liquid form. if i heat this will it produce the same effects as melted and heated glycerin?

and does anyone have any further instructions from here...?


this is probably a stupid question but i'm a complete novice in search of quick help!

Sandy, they are different creatures altogether, so no, it won't give you the same results.

Glycerin soap (melt and pour) is exactly that - soap.

Liquid glycerin is a by-product of commercial soap making.

A quick google for 'melt and pour soap UK' gave me the following links:

http://www.meltandpoursupplies.com/newindex.htm

http://www.craft-fair.co.uk/suppliers.c ... p%20Making - I note that there is a place called 'Soap from Scratch' that has their details listed here, and say they are in London.

Hope this helps.
