Are these are bubbles or from lye flakes that didn't dissolve all the way? I usually use the lye beads that are food grade but I bought the flakes and I swear it takes FOREVER and even when I thought they were fully dissolved I saw some at the very bottom of my goat's milk lye mixture when I was adding to my oils which freaked me out.
I had to do this soap at a very thin trace because the first time it seized on me and it was literally like cement. Could that have been my problem? Is it cosmetic? Can I sell it?

Those look like either air bubbles or stearic spots. Both are cosmetic and doesn't affect the soap.
Although you may want to do a zap or ph test to be sure?
