Weekly digest for March 3, 2018 to March 9th, 2018

We’re continuing to move things over from the old blog to the new, so you can find things like the ingredients and emollients list under “resources” on the site. That’s where you’ll find the list of links for the duplication formulas as well as the emollients section.

As well, we’ve started a section called “videos” where I’m sharing things I’ve done with the HSCG as well as the few videos on my YouTube channel.

I'm having great fun sharing some of the new surfactants and formulas I've been working on and testing since late 2016. I have to give these things time to see if there are any changes, like alterations in smell or colour, loss of viscosity, separation, and more. I'll be sharing more about the various surfactants I've been using over the next few weeks.

I continue to be so happy about all the comments and interactions on the new blog! It makes me so happy to see you all sharing your thoughts, asking questions, answering questions, and generally having a great time talking about this craft we all love so much! Please join us and be part of this awesome community!
