I came across this blog that claims milk products etc in soaps can produce unknown substances, possibly cancerous. Same goes for other stuff like honey, any food really. As we are not sure what will they become after contact with lye.
Aren't majority of us here doomed lol.
Anyway, your thoughts.
:D

Is better not believe everything on internet when it is not scientificaly proofed ;)
First they tell us to use teflon due small amount of grease required. Now telfon is a killer. I know it is, I dumped it long time ago. I am hacking, am I not?:)

I add 5% heavy cream to my recipe & substract that from my water content, love how my first bar felt even though I tweaked my recipe. Maybe the big bad soap making companies are threatened by all the Artisan soap makers who make better quality of soaps? :smile:

Ya think???

That must be why they are trying to get FDA regulation on handcrafted cosmetics. I am afraid it is a short slippery slope from there to FDA regulation on handcrafted soaps.

Those poor, poor billion dollar companies have to attack the "little" people who are taking small nibbles out of their profits with their (largely) safer, more responsibly made products. They choose to counter with regulations instead of....oh, I don't know....trying to improve their own products!? Cheap tricks over good healthy appropriate competition.

If any of this comes to pass, I will personally teach/encourage anyone interested how to make their own soap, body butter and scrubs (lotions too, when I get my own mastered).

Teflon is def. bad. not a thing good about it, esp when it gets too hot, which they all do sooner or later.All Teflon frying pans "wear out" I took all my Teflon pots and pans down back on the burn pile and gave every piece a good thrashing with my AR. Then, I went to the restaurant supply store and bought all stainless steel cookware. I kept my cast iron of coarse and use it a lot.

Triple ditto. Scaremongers at work. Probably have their own products and trying to up their business.

Actually they are on the right track but it's not the food in the soap. It the soap in the SOAP!!!!!!!! Think about it, have you ever know anyone who had cancer that did not at some point in their lives come in contact with soap?
