I am making a slow moving soap recipe so I can do some swirls ... what percentage of castor oil can I safely add to my recipe without it speeding up trace?
From my observations when I add oatmeal flour or betonite clay in my recipes, then trace seems to be coming a little sooner than usual. My interpretation for this is that maybe clay and flour is sucking some of the recipe's water and thus less water available in the soap batter = faster trace...If I added some bentonite clay would it accelerate trace?
