Tussah Silk in CP Soap
I recently purchase some tussah silk to add to some shampoo, but realised the type of silk I purchased was not a liquid but of a fibrous material. I would like to add it to my CP soaps. As I have never used this before, will the usage rate still be 2-5%? Would I add this after trace or to the lye solution. Bit confused. All comments welcomed. Thanks in advance.
Since the silk is fibrous you will need to add it to the lye solution. The lye will break the fibers down for you. Cut the silk into small bits and then add to the hot lye solution. Stir gently until the fibers dissolve.
