|Today we were testing a fragrance oil and it got so hot that the soap overflowed the mold! Since we are firm believers of the adage, “A picture is worth 1000 words,” I had to get a picture to show you what happens when a fragrance is not compatible with our Cold Process Testing. I showed several pictures of soaps back in the January post, Fragrance Testing at MMS. This batch we made today can be added to our failed soaps pile!
Can you see that the mold was warped by the excessive heat? This soap got hot so fast we had a hard time holding the beaker to pour the soap into the mold. Unfortunately, pour isn’t a great descriptor as the soap glopped into the mold rather than pour in the fashion I’ve shown you before.
Aren’t you glad this happened in our testing rather than your production?
