Hi All! May I ask how will you categorize liquid soap to use for hand and liquid soap to use for the whole body?
Is there's difference on amount and oils and butter combination you need to use for hand liquid soap and for whole body use?
I use 5 % superfatting for my liquid soap.
Thank you for all information you can share!

I use my liquid hand soap for body soap if the need arises. I would not be willing to use anything on my hands that I would not be willing to use on my body.

I have had too much separation issues with using 5% superfat in liquid soap. I typically use 3% superfat, as I am unwilling to use emulsifiers.

When I make a general purpose soap meant for cleansing the body, I use it anywhere on my skin. I can understand why one might make a soap especially for the sensitive facial skin, but I don't make one type of soap for the hands and another for the rest of the body, unless we're talking about a grease- or dirt-cutting soap for really dirty hands.
