Man, This was my first attempt but it was as hard as a rock for 3 days. They tell ya to let it losen up. Not my stuff. It took 17 oz of aloe vera to get it like whipped cream. I scented withToberose. hope ya all like it. This is good for shaving or face cream soap.

That does look so nice and creamy, sorry it was such a PITA for ya. You used aloe vera gel or juice to soften it up?

Very nice.

:thumbsup:

I used the juice and it took 17 oz. I didn't think i would get it stired in. I took the mixer to it and whip the sn-t ou of it. They say not to do that becaue it put to much air in the soap and it will fall, but mine is fine.

Thanks every one means alot. I have not done much but this is fun. I let this set for about 3days to see if it would soften up but noooooo. anyhoo on the soapcream forum they believe it was my steric.

Thanks for looking. :D

Looks WONDERFUL and so creamy!!!!

WOW that was alot of a.juice that you had to add!!

That is why Bekka thought it was my stearic. I went by her recipe and the only thing any one could come up with is that. Others had the same problem. so i am going to add more water up front next time. Hope it will behave better. Thanks for looking. Thanks for all the kind commets.

I'm holding out!! Mine's on day 4. I think I cooked alot of my liquid out trying to get to neutral. I'm hoping the humidity here will soften it up :cool2:.

I'm still not sure if the SA had anything to do w/ it so I'm holding out till I get differ SA to make another batch.

Its sooooo hard waiting :waiting:

OK I may beat you w/ the # of ozs I'm going to have to add :undecided. I'm at 15oz of d.water- I need to let my mixer cool down- LOL before continuing. As I was sitting there mixing it came to me that clay absorbs a lot of water. Could this be part of the problem??

Not sure? I love the stuff. I gave some to my Pastor {who is a woman] She Told the whole church if they wanted some nice face soap they should get together with me. WOW I was so suprized. I gave it to her for Her b-day. But man I know that it should not be so hard. I wonder with all the aloe vera i put in it if it lowered the ph big time??????? I would like to have a metter but this is suppose to be a hobbie for me not a job. I just can't seem to justify it. good luck to you and please post your would love to see it.
