Have you ever seen this?
|Have you ever received a jug of oil and noticed a haze at the bottom? Don’t be alarmed. This can be common. It just means that stearines that are solid at room temperature have settled to the bottom. This is normal!
Some oils can also have material left over from the filtration process. This jug of Castor Oil has both stearines that have settled to the bottom as well as some charcoal from the filtration process. While I probably wouldn’t use what is on the bottom of the jug for lip balm or other similar products, it won’t hurt if used in soap. The charcoal will only make the soap a little darker in color. Say… that reminds me! I don’t think we have made a single oil soap made with Castor Oil. Let’s try that tomorrow!
