Bummer, I have absolutely no info on it other than my memory... I know it did have phthalates (at least that's why they told me they pulled it for reformulation). For sure it has some vanillin, I got discoloration... I guessing 1-3%. Oh well, the hunt will continue.

It wasn't too sweet or too spicy or too raw-pumpkiny smelling. It just smelled like pumpkin bread coming out of the oven.

There were so many variables that could have affected that soap to make it set up so quickly, but at least it didn't rice. Plus I hand stirred that batch because I expected acceleration. Maybe alone Grow a Pear might not be as nice as in combination with Candlepro's Pearberry, but I sure do like it in this combo. Trouble is, I don't have anymore of the Pearberry to mix it with, although that's easy to remedy.
I'm glad you had good luck with blending it! I know different recipes behave differently. I saw a few reviews on MO talking about misbehaving for some, no problems for others. Pearberry and it do sound like a fabulous combination!

I've tried that one, but it is "rawer" smelling and sweeter from my recollection - if that makes sense. Thanks for the heads-up though! The search continues...

It was lightly both?? I'm putting that one in my cart, thanks!!

I'll have to call FedEx to see if I can reschedule the delivery. The online FedEx Delivery Manager is currently unavailable.

Joanna, CEO at MadOils responded to my email asking if the package delivery would require a signature or would it be left on my doorstep. (Signature requirement would mean they would not leave it on my doorstep, but would re-attempt delivery at a later date.) I explained why I was asking and said I would call FedEx to see if I could change the delivery date if a signature was not required. I was impressed by the prompt response from MadOils, if not by the less than gracious wording. "It will just e left on your doorstep, I suppose. We cannot be held liable if your package gets stolen, however. Perhaps someone can pick it up for you. In the future, please have items shipped to where they can be received."

Happily, the CSR at FedEx was totally gracious and helpful. He changed the delivery date for me at no extra cost because the online Delivery Manager system is still down.

I'm glad you were able to reschedule it! Joanna posted on one of their FB pages that they are working on catch up the orders, so I suspect mine will ship this week.

Carrie, have you ever carried the equivalent of MO's Pink Chiffon mica? They dc'ed it but I'm not certain why. It seems fairly popular. I have a small sample sized jar and it's a beautiful silvery pink with just a hint of peach. I just got one of yours (Summer Crush?) that I thought might be close but it's more peach/orange. Pink Chiffon is lighter than TKB's Pearl Pink and your Amaranth Pink. I think it would find a lot of use in make up and it's popular among the soapers, so i imagine it is soap stable. Any interest in carrying another pink or do you have enough variety?

cerelife, please hang on to that 2oz until I have it in hand. This notice was posted on the MO FB page.

We sold out of a couple of FOs and had to give refunds sadly. We are not sure how the inventory glitched but we had to mark everything as sold out this afternoon until we understand the glitch.
Once all fragrances are filled (sometime next week), we will list all that is left. Sorry for the inconvenience but we didn't want anymore unhappy people charging us with torches. This has been an angry (to say the least) kind of week. Glad it's over.
Don't forget, Monday is a postal holiday so any shipments that did not make it out the door will have to wait until Tuesday (day after MLK Jrs b-day) before being picked up.
We will keep all updates regarding what orders we are fulfilling posted daily on our homepage. Please refrain from inquiring online or with phone calls... as this delays us further.
Thank you for your patience

Pretty sure one of their new color offerings is batch certified bath bomb colorants which Carrie already has in stock! I'm also wondering if the new MO chroma colors are the same as Nurture's new crystal micas.
I just tested some chroma micas from a popular mica supplier, and they're nothing at all like Carrie's crystals. Most of them appear to have morph'd, but I only soaped them an hour ago. Unfortunately my cell camera is showing the soap as much prettier than it is in person, and it isn't showing the beauty of the chroma samples (and oh they are beautiful!) From the ingredients, Carrie's are definitely not chromas.

The Chromas have piqued my interest. If they are what I think they are, many of them contain ferric ferrocyanide? This ingredient will fade to nothing in soap, and is often used as a blue color additive for cosmetics. If this is in fact what MO will be carrying, this would in my mind signal a shift into the cosmetic (rather than soap) market. They are beautiful micas, but not soap stable. Catastrophe, did the micas you received contain this ingredient?

Newbie, Pink Chiffon has been discontinued from the manufacturer. It was due to low sales and they're not making it anymore.

Carrie, of the 11 chroma samples I have/tested, 4 have ferric ferrocyanide. If you don't mind, I will PM you in a bit.

Default Mad Oils to offer 4oz and 16oz

I have just read a letter from Jo on the Mad Oils website in their blog section and it she says that due to the comments they will include the 4oz sizes with their 3 small size sell events. Hope that helps some of the ones that have indicated 16oz was just to large. They do have cool colors and that is what I primarily use them for.
