hi fellow craftster

at the moment i'm trying to figure out a recipe for butter cream bars by lush (https://www.lush.co.uk/index.php?page=shop.browse&category_id=539&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=80), which is basically a fatty soap, but i'm just not brave enough to pour some sheabutter in a M&P soap.

any ideas?

Looking at the ingredient list it appears to be a CP soap with a high superfat and extra glycerine. It would probably need some preservatives to stop it from going rancid.

I have never used or tried it so I am super curious..

it does seem like it is superfatted..but I cant see a preservative..so I am assuming that maybe thats why they are suggesting the refridgeration of it..(though I know that thingies may still surface..but again I havent used it but I am super curious about it..)

I would love to hear what others say about it too..interesting product..

its ME!!
Soap licking is dangerous..please dont try it at home

will trade some soap for a superhero cape which will be used by the kid in my avatar ^^

Hmmm... this bar would be very temperamental, I would think.

Smittenheart -- according to the ingredients, it has has a LOT of naturally "anti-microbial" and "anti-oxidant" ingredients, which may contribute to the preservative process but more importantly the "Ring of Roses" bar has geraniol and citral which are naturally occuring alcohols in rose oil and some other EOs. They are actually fairly allergenic; people with perfume allergies (such as myself) are bothered by them. But I think they have preservative properties, too. The sodium chloride (i.e. salt) would probably preserve and add some stability...

Pony -- If you watch the video, this appears to be a VERY soft soap. Reading some of the product reviews, it seems like people either love it or hate it. The blurb says that it is 20% soap and 80% oils which really makes it sound more like a lotion than a soap. Hmmmm... I have to admit I am intrigued now... I agree with Gigiallin though that you'd need a heavy duty preservative. I'd probably go the synthetic route with Germaben or Phenonip.

Not trying to rain on anyone's parade, here, but I love Lush products, and find the buttercreams to be just like.... soap.  I still use them, but never found them that unique from the other soaps.  Maybe they get used up faster, ha.
