A delightful bouquet recreating the scent of this beautiful tropical flowering tree.
Cold Process Soap Performance
|Acceleration||Discolouration||Separation||Oil Temp||Lye Water Temp|
We experienced excessive acceleration but no separation. The water and oils came to an emulsion quickly and turned bright yellow. At this point, we could already see the effects of acceleration so we removed the stick blender. In the few seconds it took to wipe off the blades and set the stick blender safely out of the way, the soap became stiff. We dumped the soap into the mold and pressed down as much as we could. By the time we grabbed a piece of plastic wrap to cover the mold, the soap was already starting to gel. After 24 hours we observed that the soap reached a full gel and there was no discoloration. We could see the edges did not become uniform with the entire bar and looked like small pebbles, however, they did not break or fall off. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light tan shade and the scent was a little softer. This fragrance may perform better in a hot process soap application or other personal care products. Due to the very quick acceleration, it’s not clear if hand stirring this fragrance in would allow enough time to fully incorporate and get into the mold without hardening.
