Hey

I forgot to add my citric acid to my soap. I just notice my measured out citric acid sitting on my counter

Is it still usable? Or is it too lye heavy that it will make the skin itch?

Smh disappointed in myself... 1st time this happen to me lol

I don't think that it will be lye heavy unless your CA amount is higher than I use, or you target superfat was low.

One way to check for certain is to put the recipe in to a calc with a 0% superfat and see how much lye that would need - if you used less than that then your you should be okay.
It said 61.36g

My recipe use 59.4g... should be ok
