It's a kind of whipped soap that you can add things to. I keep it plain (whipped with colour and FO) mostly but I have made sugar scrubs and shave cream with it in the past. I have one friend/customer who will only use this as she breaks out in a rash with every other soap product she uses. It is even the right pH for use as a shampoo.I'm not familiar with bath whip, when and why is it used?

I make and sell a ton of the sugar scrub - although note that their sugar scrub recipe does not add additonal preservative, and it should. I have two chemist friends tell me that it needs it (the recipe creator uses the "sugar preserves jam" reasoning for why it isn't included in the recipe, but chemist friends tell me "this is not jam, add the [expletive] preservative"). I did not care for it as a shampoo, but my hair can be particular. I make 2000g batches of the base at a time, it melts very nicely in a regular sized crockpot. (This size batch also stores nicely in a 1 gallon bucket as well). It also works amazing as a foot scrub using fine ground pumice (not a 1:1 replacement for sugar) and some refreshing essential oils.
I have tried croap and didn't care for it. It was nice at first, but if not used immediately it develops an odd waxy texture that I just don't care for.
I really like it as a shampoo and my daughter tells me it's the only thing she uses as shampoo since I told her she could. My hair is fine, a little on the dry side, and I have a lot of it so I do use a conditioner bar after washing my hair but I do with any shampoo anyway.What was it like as a shampoo?
For me, it dried out my hair and left it frizzy - I had to get quite a bit cut off to correct it. It foamed nicely, it just left it dried out (I had added avocado oil and glycerin to it, so it wasn't the straight bath base). Hair is a bit of a pain to find a good formulation for, I've had issues with other maker's shampoo bars as well, so I've gone to formulating my own. I follow with a commercial conditioner as well.What was it like as a shampoo?
I don't have access to my recipe, but from memory I think I use right around 15% by weight.I was about to play with a pumice scrub for my feet. Suggestions of what ratio to start with?
