Here at Soap Making Resource we offer all natural tussah silk for soap making. Our tussah silk fiber is high quality, clean and perfect for every one of your batches! After you try using silk in soap making once, I think this is one additive that you will find yourself using in just about every batch!
So how is silk used in soap making and what qualities will it add to your finished product?
Silk is used in soap making by adding a small amount of the fibers to your hot lye solution. How small are we talking here? For a 5 pound batch of soap, you need to add only about a cotton-ball sized pinch of silk. A little goes a long way with this additive. In fact, the cost added to each bar of soap from incorporating silk into your product is just pennies! Pretty cool.
Tussah silk, which is actually a protein produced by the silkworm, will quickly dissolve into your lye water and the now "silk infused" lye solution is added, as usual, to your batch.
The addition of silk will cause your homemade soap to have a more shiny appearance, slightly increased lather, be more slippery, and have a general luxurious "silky" feeling to it. You will definitely notice the unique qualities added to your finished product from including silk in your recipe.
In addition, silk, of course, is undoubtedly good for your bar's label appeal. After all, silk does scream luxury!
I absolutely love silk soap and I think you will too!
