"The instructions state that soaking in water prior to adding to the lye solution can help it dissolve better. Can the silk be soaked in the water for the lye solution prior to adding the lye? Or should it be soaked separately and then added after the lye has dissolved completely? Not sure how this will affect the water in the formula/recipe. Thanks!"

"Hi, I see in the questions that customers have been asking if this silk is obtained cruelty free. Since 2019. It's now 2021, and thought I would ask again. Is this silk cruelty free? Is it obtained AFTER the worm has left the cocoon, as opposed to being boiled alive in it? Awaiting your response. Thank you!"

"Love the effects in soap!"
COMMENTS:  I love the silky lather that this tussah silk adds to my soap. One thing that I would like to note- which completely slipped my mind when ordering- is that this product is not vegan, so if you are trying to have a vegan bath and body line I would avoid tussah silk altogether. Overall though, if you aren't trying to make vegan products this is a game-changer!
