I have always gelled my soaps, really out of convenience. Workshop is a portable building in Se Ga and once I cut the AC, well, no insulation needed. Wanting to achieve vibrant colors and textures tops i wanted to try stopping gel. I cleared a spot in my deep freezer and made a trial loaf. I got a partial gel,, big ugly round dark spot in the center of the loaf. My lye water was prepped night before so it was cool, hard oils were maybe 90 degrees, just barely melted and combined with the soft room temp oils. Used a silicone liner in a wood loaf mod. Was a silk soap, color and floral fragrance added but no acceleration, if that matters. Any help is appreciated!
