Does anyone here make hand-milled soaps?

Recommended Posts

If you do, and you buy store bought soaps as your base soap, can you tell me what brand I would use? My book just says "white, unscented, non-detergent soap". What brand would I buy for that? One recipe says to use a "white, unscented beauty bar", would Dove, unscented qualify? One says to use a "pure vegetable soap, unscented". What would that brand be?


I am new to soap making, so sorry to sound so dumb. I do have some websites and books on it but none give a brand name. I don't know anyone in my area that makes a homemade base soap either.

NOt a soap maker, but Ivory is white, unscented (if you get unscented) non-detergent. Dove would work for your second catagory. Look up Neutrogena to see if it would work for pure veg unscented--I don't think so.

I've never heard of making soap with soap already made. Interesting.

Amy g is a former soap maker, I believe.
