liquid soap - 2009/12/09 14:02 Anyone out there familiar with liquid soap making? I have done a couple batches but want to try some recipes from Catherine Failors book and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out if I weigh the made paste to figure out how much water dilution and borax I will need to add? Her book is great but not specific enough for each recipe, or elase I am just really easily confused
Thanks in advance!!!

Re:liquid soap - 2009/12/10 08:29 I've read that book several times and I'm still confused, although I do think I can figure out most of it because I've had a few successful batches. Which recipe are you using? That will greatly help me to help you. Denise

Re:liquid soap - 2009/12/14 18:27 Thank you so much for the help I am trying the moisturizing batch with jojoba oil and was planning to use sulfated castor oil to superfat it. I also have a recipe I got off essence supply but I find that it really drys my hands. I actually really like the recipe that is posted on the essence supply website if I could just figure out how to get it more moisturizing. I tried using Sunflower oil instead of canola thinking that it may make a difference but it didn't.
So if you have any suggestions either for the dilution/borax amounts for the moisture soap from the book or any suggestions on how to get a recipe more moisturizing I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you again for the help))

I found this information quite good:

Scroll down and there is a dilution chart with very clear instructions. HTH Denise
