  • Cream Soap made with lyes, glycerin and oil

    Hello everyone,
    I have been trying to formulate cream soaps, and while I think I have a wonderful formulation I created and tested, I decided to purchase one to test it, and tweek it, if needed.
    Because it’s a purchased recipe, I cannot give out the types of oils or measurements. After buying, I was given the process instructions.
    My question is this: the instructions say to mix together the stearic acid, oils, glycerin and lyes together, mixing on a low speed to create a dry mix, and then add the water. There are two other ingredients I will not mention,because of it being a purchased recipe (I will look up the reaction it could have being mixed with lyes). I have tried to research the safety of mixing dry lyes with oils, stearic acid and glycerin, but am coming up empty handed. Is this safe to do? Instructions tate it’s safe and there will be no chemical reactions.

    Thank you,

    Honestly, you have little to no liability in revealing the “two ingredients” as you will have to list them in the ingredient declaration regardless. It’s the percentage usage that could be protected IP. It would be helpful to at least reveal their INCI’s as they could have an impact on the Formulation.
