    Green Mountain Shaving Soap?

    I know this is an older thread but just wanted to chime in that I purchased some a while back at a local shop in Alabama and really enjoyed using it until one of my children stole it from my shaving area and destroyed it during bath time :angry: We have really hard water and it was more than...

    Anyone here tried Creatine? Your experiences?

    Well, a quick search on scifinder shows otherwise.

    another bozo makes some soap

    Depends on a lot of factors - superfat can be between 3 and 8% - I never go over 5% though becasue of humidity here but if you lived in a very arid climate you could get away with slightly higher.

    another bozo makes some soap

    Nice! I would personally cut down the coconut oil, you have it a bit high - too much is really drying (for me anyway). Also when you are formulating in soapcalc, you need to mark the little radio button that says 90% purity under KOH, as KOH absorbs water and the kind you purchase from a lye...

    Bath soap without coconut oil?

    Just go for a castile soap - 100% olive oil - it takes a year to cure but so worth it - you can find cured castile at a health food store - read the ingredients, should say either saponified olive oil or sodium olivate. Kiss my face makes several varieties. Dove is awful for your skin :(

    Anyone here tried Creatine? Your experiences?

    Don't do it - just don't - its really hard on your kidneys and when you stop the like 3 lbs you gained go buy bye in like a day. Trust me, speaking from experience - just do a nice protein shake after work out and eat more while you are bulking.

    Anyone into astronomy "Star Gazing"

    I love astronomy and my uncle has made several Newtonian reflector telescopes, down to polishing the lenses himself and writing some of the software to track trajectory and take photos. I typically just go to the observatory on one of the college campuses nearby but I would love to learn how to...

    Tiki Bar Soap Not delivering what I paid for.

    Thanks guys. I really do feel awful about it, but to be honest the way I was treated by the OP who brought forth the claim is why I keep doing what I do - he could have yelled at me and cursed me out, but he didn't. He was very kind and civil and that means the world to me.

    Tiki Bar Soap Not delivering what I paid for.

    No, you don't need to offer any apology! It is totally my fault that it happened, not yours, and I completely and totally 100% own up to that. I am the one that should be offering the apology, not you!!! I just wanted to reply here so that others understood what is going on in general, and what...

    Tiki Bar Soap Not delivering what I paid for.

    Just got in touch with you via email but I will respond here as well. It isn't that I didn't send the order, an aftershave was left out of the order. I switched over to order fulfillment via a warehouse provider where I send them the soap and then they send out the shipments, so I am actually no...

    Simple table top product photography

    I think they all look fine - I find 'professional photographers' to be quite snobby - not all, but most. Just because you learned the equation for focal length doesn't mean you are now master of the universe.
