Hmm, sounds cool! Not sure how to make it either, will think about it! You would want it to still have some oils in it right?

Ok, how about a whole lot of sugar in a batch of cp soap? And then cut it up super small?


Here's one with mp:
I found this at teachsoap about 2/3 or 3/4 of the way down the page (Solid Brown Sugar Scrub)http://www.teachsoap.com/recipes.html

And here's a discussion about it...although for the life of me I can't figure out why the one person is against honey, honey doesn't go bad! http://www.teachsoap.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1417

Here's a molded one with oil and sugar, no soap:

MareMare..

do you think that ALOT of sugar in CP would be able to achieve the same thing??

I saw the one recipe with M&P...

I really think its a cool idea..

I'd love to start working on it..I wonder if theres a big difference in reg sugar,brown,raw..

I'm thinking it's worth a try! It seems like it would work...it shouldn't dissolve if you're using a ginormous amount of sugar like what I'm thinking. Like a big ole pile of sugar and just enough raw cp to hold it together?

I wanted to try making some also, so I looked online for a recipe and found one a few days ago.

Cool! Foaming Bath Butter is so expensive now that I wouldn't make as big as a recipe as it calls for...just saying that sounds like a lot!

Actually I've been playing around with soild scrubs for the last couple of days....

This is one with brown sugar.


I've made these with salt, but I think you could replace the salt with white sugar.


salt + granulated pomegranate seeds


salt + coconut (coloured with food colouring)


The basic recipe I used is the following
20 g cacao butter
20 g shea butter (can be replaced by coconut)
20 g baking soda
2 ML Mulsifan

Cool! And very pretty! Is that the finished size or are you slicing them up? What is mulsifan?

although for the life of me I can't figure out why the one person is against honey, honey doesn't go bad!

My guess would be that she is either A) concerned about the water content (eh?), or B) she is worried someone would use it as a sole preservative? (for the record, as I've stated before, there is NO such thing as a "natural preservative!")

But who knows. People are funny about funny things. Roll Eyes

@Pony-- Ooooh those are all lovely!!  Shocked
