Cold Process Soap Performance
|Acceleration||Discolouration||Separation||Oil Temp||Lye Water Temp|
We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration and slight separation. We used the sticker blender to bring the batter to a medium trace, which happened very quickly, however we still saw some oil separation. A few additional pulses of the stick blender and some hand stirring allowed the batter to hold together without separating. The batter was at a thick trace and started to become grainy but gentle, continuous hand stirring helped keep it smooth. Initially, the batter began to pour smoothly into the mold but quickly thickened and turned into big batter globs. Even tamping the mold on the table was not enough to smooth the top. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had almost reached a full gel and had discolored to a light to medium tan shade. The scent was very strong and true. After 30 days, the scent remained strong and the soap discolored to a light brown shade. We chose to start the mixing process at temperatures below 100ºF based on past experience with this fragrance. This fragrance can be tricky to work with in a cold process application, so you’ll want to work quickly and plan a basic design or single color.
