I wasn’t questioning your selling status, lol. Your business. I was just questioning the high water amount. I’ve never heard of such a thing. I soap at a 2:1 ratio. I’m amazed you even got a bar with a 9:1 ratio, I would expect liquid soap with that ratio.I had soap on a stick* with the 4:1 ratio. I assume it's from the 17 year old garage olive oil misbehaving. I had a really difficult time getting it to emulsify at 9:1 ratio. I think I stick blended until it reached trace, there was no true emulsifying happening. Even at 9:1 I was initially scared I wasn't going to be able to do any sort of coloring or design because the lye mixture went white upon pouring it into the oils, and I was like, ooooo boy, here we go again, but it worked, sort of. At least I got a design.
Did I mention I do NOT sell my soap??
*Soap on my stirring stick, I didn't even stick blend it. Never got a chance to.
