Join Susan as she obsesses about cosmetic chemistry and other things (some possibly related to monkeys). Often strange, occasionally useful, and always worth a stop as a point of interest on your journey through the Intertron.
I started making soap when I was planning to start making my own skincare. I stumbled upon a recipe and was intrigued - years later it is now a business for me. It makes me laugh when I decided to concentrate on soap making because it would be less time consuming to learn than skincare, it took me a year and a half to formulate my base soap! While I have your attention, Susan I have scoured your site for information on surfactants. I want to try and make a cleansing bar that is similar in consistency to a soft lotion bar, something you could pinch off and easily spread on your face. When water added it would foam. The base of such bar would just be oils and butter. Don't know if its possible I can't seem to find an answer anywhere so i am suspecting "NO". If yes - just point me in the direction of such ingredient. I love you blog! Thanks, Kiev
obviously, im not susan, but the only thing that pops in my mind is coconut oil. it foams a bit. hope thats helpful. cheers, Rebecca.
