Because I've been asked...

I get my glycerin base (used for the angel soaps and other future limited editions) from Organic Creations. Fabulous stuff! Many of the glycerin bases I've seen on the market have added detergents for extra lather... not BallyHoo Betty! :-) I'll sacrifice tons of lather in my glycerin soap if it means I don't have extra chemicals any day. And this stuff always leaves my skin feeling fabulous.

The glycerin soaps contain: saponified oil (coconut, peanut, soybean, castor and safflower), glycerin, filtered water, cocoa butter, aloe vera, sorbitol (a humectant derived from berries), and vitamin E.

Of course, my cold process/artisan soaps don't have any added detergents either and they lather beautifully. I've always wondered why the glycerin soaps don't. If anyone has any input, I'd love to hear it!

I occasionally make M&P, but I thought that the lack of lather was because of me.

I don't know the reason, but maybe through Anne-Marie's they can answer that question.

Hi Steph! I've seen high lather M&P, but they've always had added sulfates. :-(

I'm eagerly awaiting new molds from Bramble Berry, which means more pictures :-) I'll take them out on a sunny day and get pictures.

I don't seem to have any glare problems with the CP soaps, but then, they don't seem to get high gloss or have added mica (for the most part) either.
