Hi, I have been making goats milk soap and every time it looks beautiful after it is made and when I go down stairs in the morning it has changed color drastically. I add the lye to the milk by the tablespoons and do not let the milk get over 70 degrees. Last batch I used green french clay and layered it with uncolored batter. It was a beautiful. Cream color with green stripes. In the morning it was pink with charcoal grey stripes. I used essential rosewood oil and musk. If anyone can help me out trying to control the outcome I would be very grateful.

When there is still active lye in soap it can sometime show pink. I'm assuming you did not gel for this to happen so if you give it time to cure the pink should go away. The clay should green up some to but I have found its kinda a grey green in my soaps.
