Good morning everyone, I wanted your opinions on the validity of this article because I'm always reading you really can't get more lather from a melt & pour soap. I would like to try the recipe but I'd like an opinion from the experts here first. Thanks in advance.

My favorite recipe for a great lathering, creamy, harder, long lasting bar of M&P is this:

Per 2 pound batch of melted opaque base add:*

2 T. Goats milk or Buttermilk powder whisked with 1/4 cup cold water
*(add this liquid milk to your base as your melting it and it
won't clump)

1 T. Emu Oil (fantastic oil) melted with 1 tsp. of stearic acid flakes

2 T. Fragrance Oil or 1 T. Essential Oils

Also add your color. Blend well and pour into molds.

You can also add 2 T. ground oatmeal, calendula petals, etc. etc. If
you want your additions to stay suspended in the base cover the base
with saran wrap so a skin doesn't form. Come back to it every few
minutes and stir. As soon as it gets thicker and your oatmeal (or
whatever) stays suspended in the base then its time to quickly pour
into your molds.

You can add the emu oil and stearic acid to a clear base with a very
little pinch of borax and it will stay clear, and still make a nice
bar. Don't add milk a clear base it looks murky and yucky.

Please do NOT do this!
Goats milk or Buttermilk powder whisked with 1/4 cup cold water added to MP soap base can grow germs or bacteria.
Think of what happens if you would leave regular milk on your kitchen counter for a week or more without refrigeration.
Stearic acid works in cold process soap as it saponifies, but it doesn't do much in MP base. Adding stearic to MP base could give you less lather.
I don't use Borax in anything and prefer not to due to what it can do to the skin as an irritant.

I prefer to work with ounces or grams as I sell my products. If you are a hobbyist, I suppose teaspoon, tablespoons or cups are ok.
