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. For a 5 pound batch, a cotton sized amount is all you need. Our Tussah silk is cruelty free!

Your soap will have a more shiny appearance and have a general luxurious “silky” feeling to it. Not to mention, “silk” adds to your label appeal! Talk about luxury.

  1. :

    I purchased the tussah silk. My soaps have been so nice since I started using it. It’s really hard to put my finger on what exactly is different. My soap is more creamy for sure, has a little more luster. It’s just the overall feeling of my silk soap as opposed to the old. I highly recommend. Just make sure to strain your lye well. Because this is cruelty free, there is some plant matter still in the fibers.

    I have tried every suggestion possible to get this silk to dissolve in my lye water. I’ve stretched it, cut into very fine pieces, soaked in distilled water that lye will be added to over night, then added lye and stirred until it appears to be dissolved. No matter what I try it ends up being a clear gel that never leaves my strainer. I soap no higher than 82 degrees F. Since I’ve tried everything suggested by the BeScented Facebook group with no luck. I’m giving 2 stars because it just does not dissolve for me.

  3. :

    Is this for the Tussah silk or the Bamboo Silk? I dont think the Bamboo ever completely dissolves, but nevertheless just a small amount is needed to enhance your soap. Hope you try the other silk to see if it better suits your needs.
