Has anyone out there ever put dark or any kind of chocolate into their soaps? The antioxidents are supposed to be superb for the skin.

I make a cocoa butter with dark cocoa powder. I use a fabulous dark cocoa powder from Whole Foods. It makes a great soap. Sometimes adding a little peppermint, especially around the Holidays.

I put dark cocoa powder in a scrub with coffee grounds and vanilla. Feels and smells good, makes me happy just to sniff the jar. It works for me! :lol:

Don't your soaps bleed brown lather? Anytime I use cocoa powder, my soaps bleed. I would love to find a way to stop it.

Ive used a square of baker's chocolate mixed in with my oils.

Yes it does produce a brown lather, but it rinses away.

It produced a nice chocolate cake like brown. I liked the color very much.

I find that adding chocolate to the soapmaker helps in any application. :lol: :lol:

I use plain baking chocolate. It takes a very small amount for a swirl in a small batch of soap. I melt it in just a tad of olive oil then mix that into the soap to be colored...about 1/2 cup.

Now...if my swirls were just better.

I have used soap with cocoa powder in it, it smells sooo good. Speaking of that I might have to make one.
