I am very new to CP soap-making; I've made about 10 batches so far trying out various recipes. So far, based on all the videos I've watched, I feel like my soap is reaching a medium trace very quickly. This frustrates me because I try to make soaps with 3 colors and by the time I pour in the last few layers it's usually already very thick. I make my color slurry before I mix the lye and oils so that it's ready and I've used fragrances that say they do not accelerate trace. Here is the recipe I use that I like the most: Olive Oil - 11.4oz Filtered Water - 9.9oz Coconut Oil - 9.6oz Shea Butter (unrefined) - 4.5oz Lye - 4.08oz Avocado Oil - 3.6oz Castor Oil - 1.5oz I let the lye solution cool to about 85 degrees F before I mix it with the oils and it feels like as soon as it's fully incorporated it reaches a light trace, then when I separate it to mix the colors it's already medium trace. I mix the colors with a whisk and then the fragrance. I'm guessing it's my recipe because of the shea butter, coconut oil, and olive oil but it still feels like it thickens up in a minute even when it's barely mixed. I also tried one of my soaps after 5 weeks and it made my skin feel tight like how a dove bar does. I was super disappointed because I've heard so many people say their soaps feel so moisturizing. Any advice on how to tweak my recipe so it doesn't trace as fast or leave a tight feeling would be appreciated.
