Transparent -> Opaque?

Discussion in 'Shaving Soaps' started by The Last Chimney, Aug 20, 2010.

  1. 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?
  2. What soap are you making? Why are you adding alcohol?
  3. And I thought I was weird for buying a brush because I liked how the logo looked. :laugh:
  4. I am not making any soaps. I want to melt down transparent glycerin soaps and make them opaque.
  5. You could try adding soap colorants. You could always purchase an opaque melt-and-pour base and make your own shaving soap.
