CP soap will not melt properly

by Marilyn

My CP batch of soap will not melt properly for MP. It does not liquefy, but turns into a thick mass.

I have tried using hardly any heat, covering the double boiler, not covering it.

The soap itself seems beautiful, I have been using it, just re-melting it is a disappointment.


Cold process soap will not melt down like MP soap does.

Unfortunately CP melts down to a gloppy mass that resembles mashed potatoes and it will not pour at all.

It has to be spooned into molds and will not have as smooth a texture as the original non-rebatched CP soap.

As far as I know there isn't any way around it. Adding more liquid doesn't work either because it just makes the soap too soft.

if you superfat cp soap to about 10-12% it melts a bit better, it will still be goopy, and the actual soap will be soft after it sets, but it will make a better rebatch oo molding soap
