Cream Soap

I am in the process of making another batch of cream soap. This time I tried a recipe from the Failor bulletin on cream soap. This batch is made with stearic acid, palm oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil. The picture below shows the soap after the cook and super creaming. It was in the process of cooling and you can see how it is starting to turn a creamy white color instead of a translucent gel. It is really quite interesting all the stages cream soap goes through before it actually becomes the nice creamy soap it is destine to be. Any suggestions on what to add to this batch?


  1. Wow! You are so much braver than I!
    I have always wanted to try cream soap but I am a big chicken and I can't find potassium hydroxide...
    Yours looks lovely!

  2. Reminds me a little of rock candy.
