In an attempt to make whipped soap, I combined 12 ounces of m&p soap with 4 ounces of whipped body lotion (my own recipe). I let it cool/harden and then whipped it through the mixer, added fragrance/color and it is now sitting in mold.

Has anyone tried this? Mixing lotion and MP soap base? The stuff sitting in the mold is not at all warm, so I'm afraid that now that I have whipped it, it won't harden :?

I have wonded what would happen.

Doesn't Dove claim to be 1/4 lotion? Maybe not so literal though.

Let us know how it turns out.

I've never tried it either, but I have wanted to try some "Noxema" in MP, saw a recipe on the internet somewhere, figured it would make a "cool" facial soap. Yes, let us know how this experiment turns out, sounds interesting.!

Why would it be warm? If it doesn't harden, maybe you could add more M&P.

Do keep us up to date. This sounds very interesting.

I think lotion would reduce the lathering properties of the M&P drastically - but I think it's worth a try.

It was warm at first because when I melted the MP and added it to the lotion the MP was still warm :)

It turned out very soft, I think I need to add more MP, perhaps at 15% rather than 25%? I used the stuff in the shower, and it was actually more lathery? :eek:

The lotion has really rich coconut oil in it (nutiva :D ) So, perhaps that had something to do with it. I'll try again, and keep you posted :)
