How do I stop my soap from going to Gel?
by Miriam Fields
I believe all my cp soap batches have gone to gel. How do I stop my soap from going through gel?
This isn't something I've done myself so I will just relay to you what I have read.
Avoid ingredients like milk products, sugars, beer...anything that has a sugar component to it in your recipe. Sugar heats up the soap base and sends the soap to a speedy gel.
Once your soap has been poured, do not insulate it. In some cases people put their soap into the fridge or even the freezer to stop the gel process. I believe it would be helpful to have smaller batches as well since the larger the batch, the easier it seems for the soap to gel.
