Hi all, as a follow up question to my failed batch yesterday...

I used a lard/olive/coconut/castor recipe that ended up failing, so I chopped up that soap to use as embeds. What I'm wondering is, can I use a coconut/palm/olive recipe to fill in around the embeds? Or, does the recipe have to be the exact same as the embeds?

The only reason I'm thinking of switching it up is because that lard/olive/coco/castor recipe is so awesome but SO quick to trace... I am concerned that I am going to end up with two messy, failed batches in a row! So I want to work with something I know won't set up in a matter of seconds :)

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, you can use a different recipe. Shouldn't be an issue at all.

Stuck in my head
No issues at all until it comes to selling. And then only an issue if you list ingredients (by calling it anything but 'soap'), you would have to list the ingredients in the different recipe of the embeds.

Great thank you, I think I'll do something a little more tried and true this time for the fill-in recipe. No issues with selling, they're just for personal use and given to close family and friends.

I will often use M&P for embeds in CP and have never had an issue. And, as others have said, when you label, you must include the ingredients of the embeds.
