I make vegan CP soap that I sell at farmers markets and festivals (30-80 bars/week) and a few small stores (10-30 bars/week). I recently got a request from an old friend from HS (40 years ago!) who has a roasted peanut business. He wants a peanut oil soap that would be private labeled for his business. He is not concerned about the soap being "all natural" or "vegan". My current recipe uses 30% olive oil (pomace) that, according to SoapCalc, could be replaced with the peanut oil with almost no change in the end product. However, I have seen several warnings about the short shelf life of peanut oil which causes the dreaded orange spots. My question (finally): Is there a preservative I can add to a peanut oil based soap to prevent the orange spots?
