Anyone else had problems with using mango butter in soap? I've used it twice now and both times it ruined the batch. The first time it didn't melt properly during the heat transfer stage (I soap at room temp) and although I tried to stick blend the lumps out, I couldn't because it reached trace and then I couldn't do anything. So the 2nd time I melted the butter first but as soon as I added the lye water to it, it just clumped and solidified and I just found myself in the same situation again! This have never happened to me with shea and cocoa, so I don't understand whats going on. Anyone any ideas?
