While the process is different than the usual cold process soaps, I agree that these soaps are awesome and well worth the effort! I found the book easy to use, full of information and very well written. This is the book to use if you want more than powdered milk in your soaps!

Although the instructions are very detailed and appear complicated, once you get the hang of making milk soaps, the results are well worth the effort. It also gets easier and faster with practice. This book produces some of the most awesome soap I have ever used.

When I read this book I heard the theme music from the circus in my head. How many more hoops and tricks can you do to create soap? I agree with the other person, this is definitely way too complicated a process. I'd love to try milk soap, but not if it includes all the steps this author says you have to go through. There just has to be an easier, or at least less complicated way.
