Making salt soap -- kinds of salt to use

Cedar Leaf

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows whether epson salt will work in cp salt soap bars? I know that sea salt and table salt are good choices -- I try to stay away from iodized salt. I also know that Dead Sea Salts do Not work. I have some Hawaiian salts that a friend wanted me to use for a salt bar but it also has epsom salt in it -- I keep dragging my heels -- Is there anyone who knows if epsom salts cause any problem...

Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate, and not Sodium Chloride. With such different properties from salt, I would not think they would work well in a salt bar. I also don't like sea salt, as it draws in moisture, and I don't like weeping bars.
