I'm not a novice google searcher, but I can't seem to find an answer at all. What is the definition of soap milling, and the specific meaning of french-milled, hard-milled, cold-milled and triple-milled soap? Everyone sells them but nobody defines them.

Hello there The basic definition of soap milling is shredding it apart with rollers and putting it back together again in high pressure presses. In "triple-milled" soap, this process is repeated three times. "Milling helps to distribute the color and fragrance evenly throughout the soap, makes the texture smoother and makes the final bar of soap harder and longer-lasting." - quote and information from Suds Report - Bath & Body Product News and Reviews http://www.sudsreport.com/Newsletters/06-02_newsletter.htm - - This is from the June edition so you may want to copy it if you need it before July's pages take over. Cold Process or Cold Process Milling - A method of soap making without utilizing any external heat source. http://www.ccnphawaii.com/glossary.htm - Soap Making Glossary for the Modern Soap Maker Hard Milled Soap is "...a lathering soap which has been compressed to remove air, allowing for a longer life than regular soaps." http://www.rivieraconcepts.com/glossary.html - Riviera Concepts Inc. : Glossary French Milling is a combined heat and cold process where the roller temperatures are alternately controled with hot and cold water. The result is a milder and longer lasting bar. http://www.vermontsoap.com/opera.html - "Vermont Soap Organics - What is Soap?" I hope the above helps with your sudsy research. Search - google Terms - soap-milling defined - with a separate search for each type If I may clarify anything before rating the answer, please ask. Cheers Digsalot
