I haven't posted here before even though I have been a member for several years. I just had to join in. I made cream soap about 6 years ago and that was my one and only time. Mine came out like marshmallow fluff. I wasn't impressed. Like Dee said, There's a mystery surrounding the whole process. It was hard to find anything around online which just made me want to make it more. It was a confusing experience because I like to know more that just the recipe. I didn't see the point of making something that I really didn't have a use for when I could make a very nice sugar scrub out of liquid soap paste or a salt scrub bar. I think it was that I had to try every kind of soap...it was like a badge of honor. The one kind I haven't tried yet was no paste liquid soap. I will probably never make it because I like the process of making liquid soap soap. I have mastered diluting it and I like to watch it change from paste to liquid.
