I made a basic cream soap recipe from a class on the yahoo group cream soap making a few weeks ago. I was getting really concerned because it had not thickened up...I was about to buy some boric acid to thicken the soap. I decided today that maybe it needed to be whipped. So I put it into my kitchen aid and mixed for about 30 minutes. It ended up turning into a thick marshmallow fluff-type texture (without the stickiness). You can see below the initial water type texture of the soap.
Below is a photo when it thickened up. It is like a cool whip texture...dense but fluffy cream.I added French green clay and ginger souffle FO to this part of the cream soap batch. Dylan tried it out and thinks it is really cool. I can't wait to see what it does with a mesh sponge in the shower.
