Love the baby soap recipe by Steve.

I would like to add sugar to the recipe to enhance the fluffy lather of this soap. 

Are there any drawbacks to doing this, other than sugar speeding up trace?

Look forward to everyone's input :-)

Thanks,

Love to add sugar to mine!
Be sure it is dissolved somehow before you put it into your recipe though or it can be grainy. I hold off an oz of the water and heat it to dissolve the sugar for the batch then add it at trace after I see what the fragrance is going to do to it. If you add it before with a scent that accelerates trace you can get soap on a stick if you're not careful.
I only use 1teas ppo but I think you can go as high as 1 Tbs.

Hi Mesha,

Thanks for the heads-up on adding fragrance first before sugar. 

I have a 'syrup' made ahead of time using 2 cups sugar and 1 cup water disolved together, and store in fridge.  Then, add 1/2 to 1 tsp. of the syrup (room temperature) per pound of oils.

I made this soap 4 days ago and it is still in the gel phase. I scented it lightly with lavender. It is a beautiful color but taking forever to harden. It may be my Florida weather. I only cut 1 bar but the middle is still soft. I sure hope it hardens soon. Any suggestions?

You can also use icing sugar, (powdered sugar, confectioners sugar)  it dissolves faster in smaller amount of water.  

When I made mine on Wed. I put some into a 4 bar mold and the rest into a log.  Popped the individual soaps out of the molds before bed .  It felt so smooth.  When I cleaned up the mold was nice on the hands.  Can't wait to cut the loaf today.

Hi,
One thing that you might want to consider . . . if the soap is for a baby's gentle skin, you may not want to add a lot of extra stuff like confectioner's sugar or icing or other processed ingredients or chemicals.  Just a thought.

I used one of these bars for my shower this morning, a nice bar.  When I made these last week, I made a few in my contour bar mold.  Plan on getting a few baby/toddler  socks today and turning them into fishes.  Use the toe of the sock and embroider a mouth and eyes, put in the soap and tie the sock with a piece of wool to make the tail.  Little ones can now hang on to the bar and "wash" themselves with it.  If I ever figure out image shack I'll post pics.

OMG, Ceebee 2001,

You Have to post pics of the baby sock fish!  Can anyone help?

I would adore seeing the baby socks made into fish - what a wonderful seller.  Especially for charity :-)  And, is very kind of you to share your sweet idea/creation.

Also, where did you purcahse your contour mold?

Thank you Opulence, Tammy C, Mesha, and all for your input on this thread!  I plan on making my baby soap soon.

I saw the sock trick when I was visiting family in Ireland.  I added the embroidery.  Got my mold at a swap meet.
