    Hi, my husband would like more “bubbles” in the melt and pour bases I have used (I bought a sampler kit). Would you add this to the goat’s milk base, for example, and at what rate? Thanks! He wants to use my soaps, but really wants more bubbles, not just lather.

    Hello,
    Forgive me if this is a dumb question but I am very new to making my own products. I was wondering if it would be ok to add water soluble things to this base. I know the extract you used is oil soluble but the green tea extract I have is water soluble. I was also thinking of adding aloe or rose hydrosol, would those types of ingredients be ok & how much would you suggest?
    Thank you so much for your help.

      Hi Lisa!

      No worries, we are happy to help! Adding water soluble ingredients to this recipe would be tricky. Because they’re made for water-based products, they wouldn’t mix in well with the shaving cream and may separate. I would recommend using oil-soluble ingredients. :)

      Also, we haven’t tried those products in this recipe so I’m not entirely sure! I would recommend making a small test batch to be sure. Typically, we recommend 1 tsp. of additives per pound of product.

    If I wanted to make a more manly shave cream using two pounds of foaming bath whip what additives would be best. Can I just use the green tea exact with another type of oil aside from the Green tea seed oil? Can I use about 2-3 oz castor /avocado oil. Can the foaming bath whip handle that amount of oil plus .75 oz fragrance oil. I just not sure how much oil I should use if working with 2 pounds of foaming bath whip.

    ANY SUGGESTIONS ON FRAGRANCE FOR MEN OTHER THAN BARBER SHOP?

    Also…how long should I be whipping the cream? Just got a kitchen aid mixer and don’t want to over mix?

    I asked this question yesterday, but it appears as though my comment has been deleted, because it’s no longer here. Not entirely sure why it would be gone, since I was asking for help….

    In any case, I purchased the bath whip the make shaving cream for my husband. Made it yesterday; used grapeseed oil instead of the green tea seed oil, which is back-ordered. I followed the directions to a T, aside from that & adding a couple of drops of Optiphen, since watery hands delve into the jar, and the final product turned out grainy. Do you have any ideas as to why it turned out that way, and how I can avoid it in the future? I should say that aside from the graininess, the fragrance and actual whip of the product were spot-on. Thanks! :)

      Hi Cher!

      Wednesday and Thursday we were updating our blog, so some of the comments may have gotten lost. So sorry about that!

      I’d love to help you troubleshoot! Can you tell me a little more about your process, for instance, how long did you whip the cream? Thank you!

        Gah, I am SO sorry! I totally missed the reply notification for this, and forgot to check back!

        I whipped for the recommended amount of time, but I also added a few drops of the Optiphen to it, since I knew wet fingers would be digging into the jar. I’m not entirely sure where the graininess occurred, but it never remedied itself, and since my husband ended up not liking it (more on that in a sec), I used it all to shave my legs. LOL

        Now, on to why he didn’t like it. He gave it his best effort; used it every single day for a week straight, and had terrible razor burn with it, where he doesn’t ever get razor burn with that commercial junk. I am certain I can make this so that he’ll love it & won’t get road rash on his face, but I’m not sure how to go about it. Could I add a tablespoon or 2 of pure vegetable glycerin to it to alleviate that? What about other liquid oils, or even butters? He clearly needs something that is far more moisturizing & has a little more “slip”, but I’m at a loss. Thanks so much in advance for your help! :)

        • Kelsey says

          Hi Cher!

          No worries! I’m a little stumped as to why the recipe was grainy. Sometimes, if butters are heated up too much they can cause graininess. However, this recipe only has oils so I’m not sure why that was happening! I’m thinking the Foaming Bath Whip may have been colder and had some chunks that didn’t get fully mixed in. Whipping it a bit longer may help make it smoother. :)

          Adding about 1 tsp. of bentonite clay per pound of shaving cream can help! It adds a nice slip to your product.

          Also, the preservative may be causing some dryness. Because Foaming Bath Whip already has a preservative in it, we recommend using a .5% usage rate so as to not over preserve the product. :)

    This may sound weird, but what exactly IS foaming bath whip? Is it a whipped soap? Is it soap at all? Could foaming bath whip be replaced by shea butter in most recipes? Thanks so much!

  6. Jan Pace Candelaria says

    What other kind of oil would do instead of the seed oil above? I have your Argan, Sesame, Grapeseed and of course since I live in Fallbrook CA Avocado capital about a gallon of Avocado oil
    Thanks !

  7. Barbara Hochstein says

    What other type of container is best to sell shave cream . Some containers will leak and sweat? I want to sell this for men in a low profile container. Can you recommend the right kind of jar for this project. The bail jars are expensive. Is glass better than plastic?

    Any info would be helpful. I am looking for 4-6 oz containers. Any suggestions.
