Hi from Italy. I'd like to know the exact procedure for cream soap making. No problems with amounts of oils, only exact procedure. Is it possible? Thank you all!

soaping101 on youtube.com has a great tutorial for making cream soap along with her recipe. I've tried most if not all of her recipes before customizing them and have yet to fail. She is extremely detailed and informative. Cream soaps are used for shaving, face/body scrubs, and mixed with a bit of M&P makes a great cupcake topper. they can be scented and colored however you please.

Not to mention, kids just love playing with cream soap in the bath as it is nice and bubbly, what better way to let your kiddies get clean than by letting them play with the soap :D

Good luck and hope this helps.

I made my first batch of cream soap yesterday from a 'basic' recipe I found on one of the Yahoo groups.  I want to try to design my own recipe, but I don't really know what percentages of hard oils to soft oils to stearic acid, ect. to use to get a mild soap that isn't drying.

Just spending the morning researching and I discovered this forum.

Anyone care to share their own recent experience with making cream soaps? Perhaps share a favorite recipe formula or method?

Our SBM Advanced Soapmaking Calculator has built-in (but overrideable) guidelines for making cream or liquid soaps, but any input at all would be appreciated, for sure!
