  • Emulsion or binder for soap shavings to liquid soap?

    Posted by Anonymous on May 3, 2015 at 8:51 am

    Hi Everyone,

    I am into homemade solid bar soap formulation and have accumulated soap shavings which I would like to convert into liquid soap.
    What emulsifying agent or binder can I use to prevent the formulation from separating?
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks!

    I don’t think anyone here can recommend doing this. If you need liquid soap, why not make it from scratch?

    Bobzchemist, It’s just that I have a lot of soap shavings as mentioned prior from my accumulated soap orders.

    OK then my first question is - How much scrap material are we talking about? Secondly - what is the formulation for the soap that you  have shavings from? Thirdly - what are you planning to do with the liquid soap, i.e. is it for personal use or do you want to sell it? And lastly - what sort of processing equipment do you have available to you?
