Hi Help!
I am trying to break into the soap making world and tried to make a body scrub, everything looked like it was going well... until I tried it... it was soft and fluffy yay!, but its just too slick and oily like I tried to use lotion or butter instead of soap. The scrub is made with a soap paste I had made and I had previously made a scrub batch that got too runny and not as foaming. This time the one different thing I did is add add 25% glycerin. Previously i had added no glycerin. Any thoughts on how much glycerin to add. My total batch weight was calculated as 1000g to make mathing it easy.
