Hi everyone. I have a quite a lot to learn before I'd feel comfortable trying this, but I was browsing soapqueen and saw a recipe for a buttermilk bastille soap that contained carrot. I am intrigued! It looks lovely however I really wonder if adding carrot puree would have an effect on the shelf life or would promote rot. What has been your experience with adding purees? I also wonder about the buttermilk. I suppose lots of people have had success with milk soaps but I still can't wrap my mind around carrot especially when no preservatives are involved. Does the lye truly neutralize it? Thank you for sharing!
