Did it colour the soap a carrot orange? I was reading on the many benefits of carrot juice in soap and EO in creams and lotions.pjb31apb said:I just made soap with carrot juice and honey today. I just subbed out my liquid for the CJ. Not sure how I like it though.
Adding veggie juices does nothing to the soap, but add their benifits. The saponification process cooks the ingredients and since soap is basically a salt, there is no preservative issues. I've used avocados pureed for a great bar of soap. I have one of those bars scented with Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey FO and it is a year old.mandolyn said:Warning! Annoying newby question :
When using vegie juices in soap, do they shorten the shelf-life? How long is a bar good for before the vegie-part spoils - or does it?
Nope, it turned a darker brown, not real dark, but more than a usual bar.Marr said:Hi Paul -
Does the Avocado puree give the soap a nice green color or do you still need colorant? I have been afraid to try the puree because I have read that some purees - actually I think it was some AMOUNTS of purees will go rancid. How far can you push it?
