Liquid Silk compared to the old way

Used to get a used silk shirt at Goodwill and cut in pieces and add to the lye water to dissolve. Although this is a more expensive way, it saves a lot of time. I have had better luck adding to my hot lye water. Don't know if this is good or not, but so far has worked.

About the smell

Liquid silk smells like soy sauce because of the amino acids in it. If you buy amino acids in the store, they all smell the same. The products I have made using the Liquid Silk have never been effected by the smell because the usage rate is so small. As far as the cost is concerned, a little goes a long way, I've found, so it is actually my most cost-effective ingredient that I use.

Just Add Water!
Smells weird

I have read every review and am worried because no one commented on the way this stuff smells! I have had this for a little while but I am too afraid to use it because I don't know if that smell can be masked. It smells like the sauce that you use to marinate steaks. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and if I should use extra fragrance oil to cover it?

For those of you who use this in hair conditioner, what percentage do you use?

Too expensive!

At a usage rate of 5% this product is just way too expensive to be cost effective. I tried a 1 oz. bottle since one reviewer stated she noticed a difference in her soaps using just one teaspoon per 5 # batch. I did not notice a difference at all using such a small amount. I think purchasing the Tussah silk fibers and taking the extra step of dissolving them in my lye solution would be the better way to go and will be the next thing I try. Sorry, but I just don't think this is worth the money, at least not in cold process soap anyway.

Hi Vicki! I'm sorry you find this product to be too expensive. We found it adds a luxurious silky feel in soap when used at 5%. Though the Tussah Silk Fiber is another great option while being cost effective! Find out more about these two products in our Saturday Night Spotlight: Liquid Silk & Tussah Silk Fibers blog post.
