Soap question

Okay, quick question.  I haven’t made soap in awhile…last time I made a ton and am just now finding myself needing it…but I do have a question…


I found a cold process recipe that I would like to try for my son (activated charcoal and tea tree soap) and his skin issues.  It’s a cold process recipe, but I prefer to do hot process in a crockpot.  Can I just convert a cold process to hot process by cooking it in the crockpot to the mashed potato consistency that I kind of look for at the end of the other hot processes that I do?  I have always just used recipes from here, except one that CindyP helped with, but I want to try something different, but not change my process…what are your thoughts?

I know that this was awhile ago, so you probably already figured it out. But here goes anyhow. Yes, you could pretty much take any cold process soap recipe and hot process it. That’s how I usually find my favorite HP recipes actually, I rebatch my cold process ones when I have issues. :)

Thank you. I did figure it out but do appreciate the response…now I have to figure out how to rematch. I have one that didn’t cook long enough I guess.  I’m still really new at this.
