I know what the glycerine soap is, but what makes a triple milled soap a triple milled soap? How is it made, whats the process, whats "triple milled" about it?
Here is a wiki link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soap) for an overview

French Milled Soap - (or triple milled soap) Is a commercial process where soap (typically made from synthetic detergents) is made, dried into crystals then rolled three or more times through steel rollers. This repeated milling crushes the crystals turning them into a fine paste. This paste is then pressed and formed into bars. Removing glycerin from the soap is necessary to keep the soap from being too sticky and adhering to the rollers. French/Triple milled soap means that all soap bars will be identical with no variations in color and texture. True milled soap is impossible to do if you are not a commercial manufacturer with the steel rollers.
