I made a beautiful soap using Olive, Coconut, Palm and Sweet Almond.
At trace I added a fragrance called "white chocolate raspberry" and it turned my soap pumpkin orange!!
I tried to then add in my pink colorant - but there was no changing that orange color.
Why did this happen and could I have prevented it somehow? Is there a way to not be surprised and ruin a whole batch? ThanksAnswer:
Unfortunately some fragrance oils produce some interesting reactions during the soap making process.
Best practice is to research reviews on a particular fragrance you are interested in. Then do a test batch with the fragrance oil to see if there are going to be any reactions.
