Just for chuckles and grins - I have been playing with some of my soaps - testing which ones lather fastest. I have been trying to be consistent in speed - and timing lathering speed by number of swirls. As I get more "hard data" I'll be posting my results. Might be kinda interesting to see which soaps lather fastest - then look at their ingredients (see how good/bad the soap is for your skin) and see what similiarites the "faster" soaps share with the "slower" soaps. Maybe the faster soaps lather quicker - but are not as dense - ergo not as protective. Anyone care to join in on the experiment and test out your soaps as well?
