So I finally made some soap today. I used the following:

Coconut Oil
Crisco
Mango Butter
Olive Oil

Salt
Pink Sugar FO

I did RTCP and I must say, my oils couldn't have behaved any better if I had paid them. The process from thin trace to thick trace happened at the perfect pace. I don't know about anyone else, but that Pink Sugar FO REEKS!!!!! My whole house smells like putrid incense. I chose it because I only saw rave reviews about it at various boards, but me personally, I think it stinks to high heaven.

Anyway, I added the salt at thick trace and it mixed in like a dream! Poured it into my Pringles cans and insulated it on the warm spot on my bathroom floor. Six hours later, it was still warm but ready to cut. A bit crumbly, but I think it had a good texture. Even though it stunk! The odd thing was that it turned a bright orange color. Is that typical of PSFO? I was expecting a brown color like the tan it was while I was mixing it.

What percents did you use for your recipe? Odd that it turned orange...

I'll have to post that up in the morning. I can't get to soapcalc on my work computer. I guess it is ok to look at soap porn here but not create it! LOL

Hi!

Pink Sugar usually turns dark brown. I suspect yours will eventually turn. Most FOs with vanilla will do that.

I used a vanilla stabilizer and the pink sugar turned orange and stayed orange. I had used red dye to get a pink so not sure what color it would be without dye while using stabilizer.
