Thread: Transparent -> Opaque?

  1. #1

    Default Transparent -> Opaque?

    I've read that adding alcohol yields transparent soap. Is there a way to reverse this? Transparent soap just doesn't look like shaving soap to me, and I'd like to turn them into more visually appealing pucks.

    I know it's kind of silly, but is this possible?

    What soap are you making? Why are you adding alcohol?

    And I thought I was weird for buying a brush because I liked how the logo looked.

    I am not making any soaps. I want to melt down transparent glycerin soaps and make them opaque.

    You could try adding soap colorants. You could always purchase an opaque melt-and-pour base and make your own shaving soap.
