Usina Aloe Vera Gel

runningtrailsNovember 16, 2008

Has nayone made Aloe Vera soap with the commercial aloe vera gel? I have a jar of it I have not used in a long time. It is pure aloe vera gel a nd I would like to use it in soap. Does anyone know how much to use or when to add it? Does it cause any problems in CP soap making?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Try 1-2 TB Aloe Vera gel to 1# CP soap. I have added it at trace & don't like the results-- even after lots of stirring it tended to bead up & not disperse & is evident in the final bars as kinda gooey holes. I haven't tried adding it at the water phase because I found a place that sells powdered aloe vera & now use that. Both do add a nice overall, silky feel to the soap.
