I was melting cocoa and coconut oil and forgot for a bit and I don't know if I burnt them! the temperature rised up to 100 C (210F), at first I thought I smelled something funny but I'm not sure anymore.
Has anyone burnt oils? How can I know for sure? Should I toss them?
I've been using the same recipe for a while and always cut around 24 - 48 hrs after pouring.
This last batch I made was super hard after 20 hrs and when I cut it some of the bars cracked around the edges... What could have happened?
Are there any variables that affect how fast it...
I made this soap yesterday and today when I cut it I found all these weird spots that look like stearic but I'm not sure. The bottom half that has the spots was colored with 2 tsp zinc oxide ppo.
Also I could barely cut it after 20 hrs of pouring and some corners broke from it's...
Thank you for your notes :) It looks white on top but the rest of the soap is yellow (I'm guessing the rice porridge scorched it?) But it confuses me why it has this whiter spot, maybe it scorched while being on the mold and the upper part didn't heat that much since it wasn't insulated.
Hello! Anyone know what these white spots could be? It has lots of them and then that weird change of color that makes it whiter in the top.
Recipe: Canola, Olive, Coconut and Castor oils.
Rice porridge added with the lye
Colored with anatto rhubarb infusion for the orange and rhubarb powder...
