Color change in goats milk soap
I recently tried my hand at goats milk cp. Using a 1 lb recipe and using frozen goats milk as the water phase - keeping all temps below 88 degrees.
Was very happy at Trace and at Pour - color remained a very pale tan. However, as the soap cured, it became quite dark and unattractive.
As the PH range is good,lathers well and feels moisturizing, I would like to salvage, but very unattractive color....Any thoughts on why it turned so dark during cure? Perhaps rebatch and add some titanium dioxide?
Any thoughts greatly appreciated!Answer:
I have found that method for making goat's milk soap tends to produce a much darker coloured soap than the one that adds the milk to the soap at trace.
You could try rebatching the soap with titanium dioxide and it will lighten the soap up a little but not a lot.
Next time try adding the goat's milk at trace. You can add powdered goat's milk to the liquid goat's milk to make it more concentrated if you like.
