I have finally improved my techniques to the point that I’m mostly not getting big air bubbles in my soap, but I still have tiny bubbles that are accentuated when I cut the soaps with my wire cutter. I use this palm shortening for my palm oil because it’s the only RSPO palm product I can buy locally. I guess it’s whipped because it’s very “light”. I never looked all that closely at my melted oils until the other day when I noticed what looked like tiny bubbles as the last of the palm was melting. I think that might be what’s causing the last of my bubbles. Maybe it’s time for me to try an un-whipped palm oil?! Has anyone else noticed this? Can anyone recommend a palm oil that’s RSPO and available in smallish quantities with a high likelihood of reasonable shipping costs to the mid-Atlantic? I found 8 lbs of RSPO palm oil in a 1 gallon container for $39.75, which includes shipping from ED on Amazon. I’m wondering if $5/lb, including the shipping is a good price. That’s about the same as what I’m paying for the palm shortening. I’ve been hesitant to switch while I’m still learning and because I’ve read (as I recall) things about palm separating out in the container, etc. I know I’ve read about palm oil here at SMF, but I was having trouble turning up a good thread with a search. If you can point me in the right direction, please do. Thanks!
