    Nothing really. Did you add something to the base? Some additives will affect the soap if used in large quantities.

    What base are you using? Most MP bases lather really well.

    add 1 oz raw honey per 1 lb of base. Helps with bubbles and creaminess.

    Honey only helps with bubbles when added to the initial soap batter, not after soap or m&p is made. Most m&p now starts with soap with additives added to make it clear and re-meltable.
