How to get that beautiful whiteish soap
Hello beautiful people :O) With regards to the previous question on layering different colours, I wondered how you got the white part of your soap so white?????.
Most of my uncoloured soaps have that yellow/creamish tinge. I have seen other peoples soaps and they are whiter than white which is often a great contrast.
By the way, thank you all so much for sharing your craft. Our lifes lessons are nothing if we are unable to share them ...Thanks JewelsAnswer:
Getting a white soap depends on the ingredients you use in the soap base. The whiter the ingredients...the whiter the soap.
The scent oils you use will also determine the colour of your soap. Even the clearest looking scents can turn a lovely white soap a tan colour.
If I really want a white layer, I use as many white ingredients in the base recipe as possible, add some white mica or titanium dioxide and if the layer is small enough, I leave out the scent...I just divide the scent between the rest of the base.
