This may be a stupid question, but is it possible to use your soap, which you made view CP for MP?

If it is... is it possible to -make- a suspension base soap?

I mean, can you make plain unscented soap, using CP and then at a later stage, melt it down and use it for melt and pour?

Look up recipes for hand milled soap.  It's the process of grating unscented soap then melting it with water and different fragrances, colors and additives.  It's a lot of fun!

Yeah that would be considered rebatching, which is a different process. It won't melt down easily like melt and pour base, but it's a viable process.

Aha, thanks, that's what I was wondering.

I've managed to find a place that'll sell me the soap making stuff. I'm just having trouble finding lard and/or tallow, I guess I'll just make the rounds at all the butchers and hope for the best.

Vegetable Shortening is a good sub for tallow! I've started using it instead of palm oil (another hard oil) with great results. Have you checked for lard in the Mexican section of your grocery store or an ethnic grocery?

Thanks, I hadn't thought of that, I'll go take a look. I have a suspicion though that the only shortening we get here is Palm Oil shortening. I can't wait for my supplies to arrive now!

Edit: Oh I meant to ask, has anyone here ever made soap with ghee (purified butterfat)? Cause I could probably get that...
