    Pumpkin Soap is Sweating Profusely

    Well, I did not rebatch and here is how they turned out. Very good. Does anyone know if adding pumpkin traditionally creates a more "conditioning" bar automatically?

    Pumpkin Soap is Sweating Profusely

    So now I've been using palm kernel oil with coconut oil (the initial recipe I posted) I know typically the " go to bar" has olive, coconut, palm and some other element but that bar did not get the same reception.

    Palm kernel my apologies. I know the difference. I recently switched to palm oil and got a different reception than the recipe using palm kernel. I was shocked to say the least.

    Pumpkin Soap is Sweating Profusely

    My other recipes have around 20% co and not palm kernel and I increase the olive. And various others. I was quite surprised that they preferred this recipe but it may be because of where they work.

    Pumpkin Soap is Sweating Profusely

    I use co and pko together all the time, most people I know prefer this recipe over others. And ugh! I hate to rebatch I was doing a tiger stripe.

    Pumpkin Soap is Sweating Profusely

    Hey soapers. I just made some pumpkin soap that smells divine but its super watery even with a water discount. Now its starting to sweat water and it honestly smells a lot like FO too so I'm hoping its not sweating the FO for some reason. This is my first time making this and my first time...

    Baby oil soap

    Do you just want the scent of baby oil? Because they sell FOs with that scent.

    Tequila and Alcohol Soaps

    Here they are! No better pictures yet. The were not high lather initially but I'm hoping curing them longer will make it better.

    Titanium Dioxide Replacement
