Yup, let me grab my camera and shoot all 4 sides of a salt bar I just did.kooldad said:Can you give an example of what your label looks like? For right now I only plan my soap to be for family for a gift but if I passed them out to people at work or other non-family I would want to have a label that contained more product information.
First of all, you asked what our thoughts were on using animal fats in soap. I obliged MY opinions in my statement above, as you asked for us to do. Some people have very strong opinions one way or the other. I have my own feelings, but I respect what others want or don't want on their skin is up to them, not me. That is why I make both AF soaps and vegetable only soaps and list every ingredient in each bar by weight from the most used to the least used. Some fourms get very testy one way or another. For example. I am on a Yahoo Chat Soap Forum only for those who use animal fats in their soap. If someone disagrees with them, pray and make a fast exit, but it is a AF forum. That is why I said what I said about not pushing my ideas or beliefs on others. A dear friend here at The Soap Makers Forum is a vegetarian who has bought several bars of my AF free soap from me. I totally respect her ideas and lifestyle, and would never push my thinking or personal beliefs on her, no way in hell! That is all I meant, simply, it's a matter of personal choice....no biggie reasoning behind the statement. Hope this clarifies my thinking on the subject. I, personally, as I stated, love tallow and lard in my soap, I think it is a better soap than an all veggie soap, but that is only for me to decide for myself.gbtreasures said:SoapmakerMan wrote:
Main thing with me is;
don't push your opinions off on anyone, as everyone has the right to use or not use AF's in soap.
Hey.. please explain what you meant by this, I didn't get it. :?:
Thanks gbtreasures, I knew you said you liked the salt bars. FYI, the bar you love the best, the OMH that is a CP bar, if you look at the ing. on the back, it has tallow and lard in it at about 22% total for both. I thought I'd mention that. LOLgbtreasures said:It's really no big deal, but thanks for the explanation. SoapmakerMan, I received 4 of your salt bars and I love them! My favorite bar is the honey-oatmeal. I could not take my nose away from it. My skin feels clean and supple. As far as AF and soap go, I don't have issue or preference. I just simply want to use the best thing for my skin. and was looking to the forum for wisdom. Good Evening to all!
Thank you! That was very kind of you to think my soap is a good bar of soap! It has taken me 2 years and around 50 test recipes to get my favorite recipe that has great numbers!gbtreasures said:You are so right!
Actually, my skin seems to be clearer than it had been before I started using it, so that just goes to show what a good soap it is. Thanks!
