Beeswax soap 26 MAR 2014

29 04 2014

A coworker owns bees and asked if I had ever tried beeswax in soap. I had not but I’m willing to try new things.

Looking through blog posts and such suggested that just a small amount of wax goes a long way and to much will eliminate all your lather. I decided to try 2% and he gave me a small piece of beeswax.

2014-03-26 17.18.55The soap is ready now and I have tried a sliver off the end as usual to test after checking the Ph. It’s silky smooth. The beeswax still had a bit of floral scent. That’s almost imperceptible now. You wouldn’t notice it at all unless you smelled a regular unscented bar next to it.
