White Cold Process Soap Test


The first color I tested in soap was the White Oil Soluble Color. I expected that the soap would be white in color and I wasn’t very surprised. It was white in color. Come with me to the kitchen to find out how to achieve this color. 

I used our basic soap recipe which results in a creamy white color. I expected that there would be no color change and that the soap would be white. There were’t any surprises when making this particular soap. Easy as pie!
