Foaming Bath Butter...a.k.a. foaming Bath Meringue, Bath Souffle , whipped bath butter, and as Gudonyatoo calls it "whipped Clean"(TM)
It is a concentrated soap base that you whip with various oils of your choosing to make light and fluffy whipped soap. Bath Meringue is a soft fluffy consistency. Put on a bath poof and raise an army of suds. Use as a shaving lotion and your legs will be "as smooth as a baby's butt"(according to kviolet1). Foaming bath soap leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, sexy and clean.
You can color and add fragrance to it, just like other soap and bath products. A little bit goes a long way!
You can buy the base at a number of online retailers. It is semi-expensive, about 4.50 a pound, 5 to 10 pound minimum purchase. Try these as a supplier. Search for Foaming Bath Butter, or foaming butter base. Or you can google it.

HOW TO MAKE IT:
you have to whip at least 2 lbs at a time and make sure you whip it enough. There is nothing worse than bath butter that has been underwhipped. It is greasy and heavy and NOT awesome.
The same can be said for OVERwhipped butter. If you whip it TOO much it will start to break down.
1. Start with your desired amount, lets say 2 lbs. Kind of start to break it up with your mixer.
2. Add your oils (about 2 oz per pound). Make sure the oils you use are light and easily absorbed by the body. (jojoba, sunflower, sweet almond, grapeseed). Whip the hell out of them with your mixer until doubled in size. It will be fluffy, a little heavier than cool whip.
3. Once you are there, add your fragrance and color, whip a little more to incoporate.
4. Spoon into a cosmetic jar, put on your labels, and voila!
