"A little confusing at first, but....."
COMMENTS:  I was confused when to add this in my CP process. First I added it at trace and then read about adding it to the lye mix to help it desolve. The texture still came out the same either way. I like what it brings to my soap.

"Great for its abilities!"
COMMENTS:  The Cornsilk Powder is great for CP/HP soaps, but does leave scrubby bits in there, if left unfiltered. I purchased this because Cornsilk has Allantoin in it and since WSP does not yet carry Allantoin...I thought I'd try it. :)
