"I recently used Marshmallow Powder in cp soap. I prepared it in a hot infusion and then strained it a couple of times with a cheese Cloth. I used this for the lye solution. It didnt accelerate quickly, but turned to a thick trace fairly soon. Do you know if this powder has any properties that could accelerate trace? I read it has sucrose, that could help to trace faster? thanks"

"Great De-tangler"
COMMENTS:  This is a great de-tangler, but my only product is it does discolor your product. Not hugely, but you can tell it is there...kind of brings a dullness to micas. I still use it though.

"I can't believe this has no reviews!"
COMMENTS:  I was thrilled that you stock Marshmallow Root in powder form. Not many people are aware of it's awesomeness! Not only is it great for sensitive skin and Eczema (because it provides a protective, mucus layer) but it's amazing for hair!!! Just make a Marshmallow Root tea and spray on your hair! INSTANT all natural detangler. I'm excited to use this in my shampoo bars and I'm hoping it has the same effect!!!
