Hi everyone, so... Uh... Help... Find the perfect recipe is hard work but I almost did it... Almost... The recipe is for a goat milk soap that is moisturising, mild, cleans well...but the bubbles are too low. In an attempt to make it bubble more I added 5% castor, 3% sugar. Then I read that coconut milk was also good. Where I live coconut milk is hard to come by. Several googles later I found that you can make your own by soaking shredded coconut in water. I tried soaping with it by dissolving the lye in it. 1/2 coconut, 1/2 goat milk. First time turned out really nice. Fluffy bubbles beautiful colour. Second time I made the lye water but I had to walk away for about half hour. When I came back the lye water separated. There was a gooey disk on the surface and clear water underneath. Obviously reacted with the coconut. I mixed it and added it to my oils. The batch took forever to reach mild trace. I poured it three hours ago and the soap is still gel like consistency. Any idea why this happened?
