    I wanted to make a bade of transparent glycerin and this was what turned out to be :(
    A kind of white glycerin and gummy like a chewing gum (something like a plastina but harder)

    I started with this formula (Made by my jejej)

    Propylene glycol 22%
    SLES 27%
    triethanolamine 10%
    Stearic acid 15%
    Glycerin 8%
    Sorbitol 12%
    Sosa 1%
    Water with salt 3.5
    And a 1.5 without salt where to dilute the liquid soda to 50%

    And that was the result of making a transparent soap with a low percentage of glycerin and water so that those goths will not form (that sweat by adsorbing moisture) and more consistent fura bone that will not wear out so fast

    Use propylene glycol as a substitute for Alchol and well you can see the great: ****: I made jejejej
    If there is a Sameritan who can help me better formulate that disaster that I did, I would appreciate it very much.
