Hi Beauty Brains!
I am so happy that I
found this wonderful and informative podcast. Love,Love the podcast.
I have four questions to
1.I am trying to make a
mild soap bar with melt and pour soap.( Ingredients: Certified Organic
coconut oil, Certified Organic palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin (kosher, of
vegetable origin), purified water, sodium hydroxide (saponifying agent),
sorbitol (moisturizer), sorbitan oleate (emulsifier), soy bean protein
(conditioner), titanium dioxide (natural mineral whitener)) . I wanted to
know which ingredient gives the property of melting and solidifying at certain temperature.
2. I want to add some
botanicals like herbs, oil soluble colorants, and increase the foam at the same
time. Can I add Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (noodles) to the above melt and
pour soap as it is without melting?
3. Since the final
product's Ph is above 7, can I add citric acid to adjust the Ph?.
4. This question is out
of curiosity How does LUSH add fresh fruit and vegetables to the soap
without going bad? (example :Water (Aqua) , Rapeseed Oil; Coconut Oil
(Brassica napus; Cocos nucifera) , Glycerine , Fresh Mango
(Mangifera indica) , Dried Mango (Mangifera indica) ,Fragrance , Sicilian
Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum) ,Sicilian Mandarin Oil (Citrus
Nobilis) , Tunisian Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara
oil) , Sodium chloride ,EDTA , Tetrasodium
Etidronate , SodiumHydroxide ,*Linalool , *Limonene , Lilial , Red
AND also I feel
they add the surfactant flakes to the shampoo bar and soap bar without melting them.
Correct me if I am wrong.
