I used to sell it just for bathing but due to my tenuous school schedule I had to cut down on how many different products I offer. I mainly use this soap for my Dead Sea Mud Scrub and my shaving cream. You can go to my website (same as my username with .com at the end) and view the different items that have cream soap.

Hi,

Beeswax cannot be used instead of stearic acid. Stearic acid is essential to this process of soap making. It is what makes the soap "cream". Without it you would just be left with a squishy opaque soap that would not cream no matter how hard you whip it. Beeswax in soap in the quantities that you need with stearic acid would not make a very good soap. Typically beeswax is used to harden a bar of soap, in small amounts.

"Pleeeease post an easier one, maybe without so many soap-making chemicals? Perhaps I could try making one out of glycerin soap and something else... that would be a disaster, I'll wait and see if you come up with anything."

All true handmade soap is "glycerin" soap because glycerin is a byproduct in soapmaking. Unfortunately I do not think one can make cream soap with any kind of glycerin "soap base" as it is a totally different process than regular soap. its not hard to make at all once you get the hang of it. The lyes are the easy part:)
