I will update you via a detailed blog article once the experiment is complete. 🙂
In the meantime, if you would like to formulate a liquid soap on your own, here is a great recipe! It’s the one I used for my liquid soap creation.
Liquid Hand Soap
1 bar of soap (6 oz)
1 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp glycerin
The How To…
- Use a cheese grater and grate the bar soap completely, then pour into a blender.
- Add 1 cup boiling water and whip on high-speed until the shredded soap is melted.
- Add 1/2 cup luke warm water and stir in blender – do not whip at this point.
- Add the honey and glycerin, give a good stir.
- Allow this mixture to cool (about 15 – 20 minutes) then whip again.
- The Mixture should be 2 cups at this point. (Yes there is foam but it should measure only about 2 cups actual soap)
- Top with cold water until the mixture measures 5 cups, whip.
- Pour into containers with pumps and allow to cool (do not put lids or caps on yet).
- After about 1 hour, close containers and shake.
The Soap mixture will thicken up as it sits to cool completely. You may add coloring and some essential oils if desired before pouring into containers..
I will conduct the experiment using the bar soap and liquid soaps as hand soap only to start. I will document my findings and post here at the conclusion of my experiment.
Why? You want to know why I would bother with this experiment? Oh good question!
Well, I am often asked what lasts longer? bar soap or a liquid soap. I do not have an honest answer so I am going to document # of washes, pumps, days etc.. vs. washing with a bar soap. I want to truly find out which lasts longer. I also hope to find a better bargain / alternative for my customers interested in purchasing my soaps for hand soap not just bath/shower soap.
See now? I hope that made sense. 🙂
If you do try the recipe above, please let me know how it worked for you. As always, thanks so much for reading!
Have a Beautiful Day & All The Best To You!!!
