[soapcraft] Re: Beeswax

Hi everyone, thanks for the welcome. I used the beeswax to see if it would make the soap abit harder. I only used about 2% of the total of oils and I grated it and melted it into the pot with the oils. no mess although it is a bit hard to grate with my old grater!Cheers Annette:-)




I'm new to this but I read in one of the soaping books that if you add a
little beeswax it makes the soap easier to re-mold.

Annette mentioned Beeswax and I'm curious what you people feel this adds to
the soap? I know some use 2% in every batch to reduce ash, but have never
tried it myself as I rarely get ash and just wash it off or embrace it when
it does occur .. Does it have any other properties or purpose?
