(Sugar doesn't work as an exfoliant - but does help boost lather/bubble.)
I am a little late to this party, but I will correct this statement. While most do not use sugar as an exfoliant it certainly can be used. In the past, I have made sugar bars very similar to salt bars without having to use the high superfat since sugar does not deter from the lather. When and if I ever get back to making soap I will be making some more since I loved them. I just used 100% sugar the same as making a salt bar.
I also agree a little salt is not going to hurt a stream. Also if one is worried about the tiny percentage of fo or EO in a bar of soap versus a stream make an unfragranced soap.
Do remember Joey, your soap needs to cure at least 4 weeks so if you have a trip coming up you need to plan ahead.
