Coconut Oil 76 in CP Soap

Coconut-Oil-76-in-CP-SoapCoconut Oil 76 in CP Soap

You’ll go coco-nuts for coconut oil 76 in CP soap. What does the ’76’ mean? It simply denotes that this type of coconut oil has a melting point of 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Coconut oil has many beneficial properties for use in all sorts of products–it’s even edible!!–but for our purposes, we’re going to discuss coconut oil 76 in CP soap. (Please do NOT attempt to eat the soap.)

Coco Clean

Our cold process soap testing recipe features coconut oil as the second most abundant ingredient (by weight) after water. Rightfully so, for you see, coconut oil is comprised primarily of lauric and myristic fatty acids which are characterized in soap-making by providing cleansing properties, a bubbly lather, and hardness. Coco-o is a surfactant, meaning it reduces the surface tension of a liquid when it is dissolved, allowing the dirt and impurities to be rinsed off of the skin.

Coco Cream

In addition, the high content of saturated fat serves to give coconut oil a higher SAP value (the number of milligrams of lye that is needed to completely saponify, or turn into soap, one gram of a specific oil, butter, or fat. — Lye, while generally thought of as a bad guy, is a necessary evil for the saponification process. Always remember to follow safety procedures when handling lye. [Add lye to water, the mixture will get hotter; add water to lye, you’ll probably die]). Remember that rhyme to ensure safety.  While you will likely NOT actually DIE, you can surly get hurt from the lye volcano you will create if you add water to lye.  SO…Don’t ever do that!  Always add your lye to your water.  The high SAP value of coco-o helps to superfat the soap (the amount of lye used is less than the given SAP value), giving it a nice, creamy texture and more lather ability. You can thank coconut oil for making your homemade CP soap clean and bubbly.

Coco – What the heck does that mean?

Furthermore, coconut oil serves as an emulsion stabilizer. What the heck does that mean? You may already know, but I just learned about this today, so I’m going to recap for myself and the benefit of anyone out there who’s not entirely sure. An emulsion is a mixture of two things that don’t really want to go together– for instance, oil and water. Water is the number one ingredient (by weight) in our CP soaps, and just about everything else is some type of oil (apricot kernel oil, castor oil, sunflower oil, palm oil, fragrance oil, and- of course- coconut oil 76). An emulsion stabilizer helps to keep this mixture from separating. This means, not only will it help hold your soap together, it will also help hold the fragrance. (Don’t worry, the coconut oil itself has been refined so it is odorless. Unless you ARE looking for a coconut fragrance in your soap. If so, we’ve got ten coconutrelated scents you may enjoy using!)

Coco No-no

Oh, wow, you’re thinking. Coconut oil 76 in CP soap is so great, I want to use as much of it as possible! And of course you do, but how much is too much?  A typical soap recipe calls for 20-30% coconut oil. It’s important not to use more than 30% coconut oil. Why? Is it possible to be TOO clean? The excess coconut oil 76 in CP soap will interact with the natural oils on your skin and dry it right out. But if you use the appropriate amount of coconut oil, it works in the soap to help clean skin and even reduce inflammation.

Cococonclusion

Coconut oil 76 in CP soap is awesome as long as you’re careful not to use too much in your recipe. So go ahead– what are you waiting for?

Cold-Process-Soap-Testing-VideosCold Process Soap Testing Videos

Here at Natures Garden we realize that choosing the most perfect fragrance oil for cold process soap can be quite challenging.  Well, we have the solution.  We recently decided to begin retesting each of our more than 800 fragrance oils!  Over the years we have had multiple people testing the fragrances which might mean multiple result interpretations.   In addition, we have masterbatched to test the soap scents.  This time around, we have decided to test each of our fragrance oils individually, giving each scent its very own batch.  We also have Bailey testing each scent and guess what….we’re taking videos the entire time!  This means not only will you be able to read the results, but you can actually see it with your own eyes.  There will be no more guessing how much time you will have to work.  Have you ever wondered what exactly is a light tan or dark beige?  Well, no more guessing on our interpretation of the final discoloration.  We show you all of this right in a cold process soap testing video.  How cool is that?!?

Now, let me explain the process and recipe we are using to create these wonderful cold process soap testing videos.  Let’s start with our recipe.

Lye Solution

Water 144 grams

Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) 53 grams

Sodium Lactate 8 grams (added to cooled lye solution)

Oil and Butters

Apricot Kernel Oil 26 grams

Mango Butter 53 grams

Shea Butter 49 grams

Castor Oil 14 grams

Sunflower Oil 63 grams

Palm Oil 57 grams

Coconut Oil 76 113 grams

Fragrance Oil 29 grams (Amount reduced if mandated by IFRA)

Here is our process.  We are allowing our lye solution to cool to about 100 degrees.  Then, we incorporate our sodium lactate.  Once that is done, we go ahead and combine our lye solution and oils.  We use a stick blender to emulsify the batter.  The fragrance is incorporated and we observe any ricing or acceleration.  The soap batter is then poured into one of our Silicone 6 Cavity Flower Mold at trace.  After about 24 hours we remove the soaps from the molds and allow them to cure.  Once the soap has cured, we note any discoloration.

Next, comes the fun part…putting the video together!  You will see in these videos Bailey has tested the fragrance especially for you, our customers.  We felt it was important so you could see exactly what the fragrance did in cp soap from beginning right to the end.  This will give you a better idea of how much time you will have to work….or how much FUN can you have with the scent!  We will also show you what the final soap looks like after cure.  You can see just how the soap discolored.

Are you wondering just where you can find these videos???  Well, once a video is completed for a fragrance, it is added right to the website, on the page for that scent.  This way you will be able to see the fragrance oil’s performance as you are shopping.  We already have a video added for our Almond Fragrance Oil.  We will use this scent for an example.

You will not only see a picture on this page of the finished CP soap discoloration, but notice the blue tab right above the picture that says “Video”?  Click on that tab.

Cold-Process-Soap-Testing-Videos

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clicking on the tab will bring up videos related to our Almond Fragrance Oil.  You will notice two videos on this particular scent.  One is our video describing the fragrance oil (you should totally watch that one as well…it’s awesome too!).

The other video is the one we are  will be focusing on today.  It show you how the fragrance performs in soap.  Click on the second video.  You will then see the video pop up and be able to watch it.

We already have many videos posted and many more to come.  If you don’t see a video for the fragrance you are looking for, make sure you check back often as we are adding new videos each day.  Bailey is working very hard to get each Nature’s Garden scent tested again in CP soap just for you.  Our hope is that these cold process soap testing videos will make your shopping experience much easier.  We hope that you enjoy these cp soap testing videos.  Make sure you stay tuned for more fragrance fun!

Soap Dye Color Morphing

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, cold process soap, Natures Garden, soap, Soap making supplies, Uncategorized and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

soap dye color morphingSoap Dye Color Morphing

We’ve been experimenting with our soap colorants lately here at Nature’s Garden, going between our dyes and pigments. We’ve talked about our blue dye and how it can morph your cold process soap, but have you tried our reds or yellows? Well we have! Like with the blue colorants, we used our red and yellow FD&C Da Bomb dyes in cold process and melt and pour soap to show you the differences! As we all know, our pigmented colorants, or FUN Soap colors, will not cause any morphing problems in melt and pour or cold process, and we have conducted this experiment to see if the same is true for our yellow and red FD&C dyes!

Our red FD&C dye was experimented with in both our melt and soaps as well as cold process. In melt and pour, it brought an awesome bright red color as soon as it was added! However, when used in cold process at first we were concerned that it may have the same problems as our blue FD&C dye with color morphing. When I first mixed it into the soap, it was definitely red! However, after I poured it into the mold, it did start to look like an orange color! But after we let the soap sit for the required 24 hours we realized that it was a brick red. So don’t be concerned if you use our red FD&C dye in cold process and it looks orange at first! It does not color morph as badly as the blue! We do recommend using our FUN Soap pigmented colorants over the FD&C dyes for cold process soaps however since the Da Bomb soap dyes can bleed and fade over time.

With our yellow FD&C dye, as you can see in the pictures above, we have tried it out in both melt and pour soap and cold process. It brought a beautiful bright yellow to our melt and pour, and the same goes for our cold process. There was no doubt that it was yellow in cold process! Both of our yellow colorants, FD&C and FUN Soaps, work very well in melt and pour and cold process soap.

The usage of each different kind of colorant for your soaps is based on the pH levels as well as the actual saponification process. Melt and pour soap is technically soap that has already gone through the process of saponification, so it is only slightly alkaline. However, since cold process is made completely from scratch the pH levels are very high initially. Pigmented colors can withstand higher pH levels much better than dyes. The red and yellow soap dyes will not cause major color morphing, but we do recommend using our FUN Soap Colorants for cold process over our FD&C dyes. Please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Nature’s Garden if you have any thoughts, concerns, or questions!

Swirl Soap Problems

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, cold process soap, Natures Garden, soap, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

swirl soap problemsSwirl Soap Problems

I have recently been experimenting with making all kinds of soap, but I had quite a few problems making my first batch of in-the-pot swirl cold process soap. I was attempting to make a soap with the signature colors of Nature’s Garden swirled into it. Wouldn’t that be so cool? We thought so, and I was so excited to try it out! However, as I’m still a newbie to the soap making process, I had quite a few problems!

One of the first problems I had was getting my colors to thoroughly disperse in my soap mixture. After having completely mixed the oils and butters with my lye water and pouring into separate bowls to mix colors, I was having problems with getting my colors mixed thoroughly. Especially the blue. As you can see in the picture below, my blue pigment ended up not mixing completely, which left little blue speckles throughout my finished soap. This is possibly caused by the color separating within its bottle. Do you know what to do if this happens to you? Deb has taught me that if I notice my color has separated, that it can be fixed by mixing it with vegetable glycerin and agitating.

swirl soap problems

 

 

 

See all the blue speckles?

 

 

 

One of my other swirl soap problems was that I did not mix my colored soap batters long enough. While this does coincide with not mixing my blue thoroughly, it did cause a completely different problem apart from the speckles. When the colored batters were still in their separate containers, I should have kept mixing them until they came to a slight trace. (Trace happens when the batter has begun to thicken. If you hold your spoon or mixer over your bowl with some batter still on and it leaves little trails on top, then it is at trace.) Instead of bringing each colored bowl to trace, I only brought them to the emulsification stage. This caused my colors to dissolve into each other while they were in the mold instead of producing an actual distinctive swirl.

There should have been a swirl instead of how the colors have just blended into each other here.

 

 

I would love to hear about any problems you’ve had with in the pot swirl technique, or just soap making in general! I’m just a newbie at this, so I am actually glad that I have been having these problems so I can learn from them! Soap making is so much fun! I’m getting ready to remake this recipe so I’ll be back to let you all know what happens! Please contact us here at Nature’s Garden if you have any thoughts, questions, or concerns!
