    Yet another post on DOS...

    Hello DeeAnna, I read tour article and have a couple of questions: Do trace minerals in clays can also contribute to DOS? and... You mention storing oils in glass or plastic and never metal, my EO supplier sends me the product in aluminium bottles, is this terribly wrong?

    Superfat and dissolving rate

    Hi again :) I have continued my experiments, using the 4 soaps I made. This are the same batches because new ones would take a month so I'll keep you posted on that. However this is what ?`ve observed so far: I made 4 formulas to see which one was lasted the longest since all 4 of them have...

    Superfat and dissolving rate

    Thank you for your answer! I'll keep testing and see how it progresses. I did tested blindly, though, just now I checked which was which and was surprised by the results. But theoretically a soap with more SF will dissolve faster than another one with the same recipe but less SF, right? Or...

    Superfat and dissolving rate

    Hello! I made some different recipes to try out and compare. One of them is OO 60% CO 25% Cocoa 15% and did two versions, first one with 5% SF and the other one 2%, hoping the later one would last longer with the reduced SF but to my surprise it has been the opposite! For the test I used...

    Safflower and polynsaturated oils

    Hello! I'm exploring the option of tweaking my basic recipe by changing canola oil (20%) for organic safflower or sunflower. Since I'm looking for organic oils I know they'll be the low oleic version and I'm afraid they will go rancid pretty quickly and cause DOS. For those of you who use...

    DIY wire cutter

    Cool! Thank you so much for this info!! I cannot imagine the rest of my life changing wires every 2 minutes. Are these steel strings covered with something? Or just pure steel? Do you think a 22 gauge galvanized wire could work?

    DIY wire cutter

    Hello! I made a multi wire cutter with some guitar strings and as soon as I tried them a bunch of them popped. Maybe I'm not using the right kind? Saw on youtube someone using galvanized wire which is way cheaper but I'm not sure if this is OK for cold process soap... has someone here tried...

    Ghost swirl resulting backwards

    Hello! I tried auntie clara’s water discount technique, wanted the bottom half of my soap darker, more traslucid (higher % water - 30% lye concentration) and the upper part lighter (38%) in the same batch I used a 33% lye concentration to make a test with beetroot powder. Of course everything...

    Long lasting bar

    which is your magic number for cleansing? My soaps are always pretty cleansing because of all the CO, also why they use up so fast.

    Long lasting bar

    Everything you describes happens to my soaps 😂 slimy and sticky! Yep I'm guessing the canolaoil is to blame but also maybe the SF! Although my soaps are high in CO so I'm not sure if I should even try to decrease it. Based on your experience... for a 25% CO, how much SF would you advice for...
