Real lemon juice in soap?
Hello. I barely received my first order of shea butter melt & pour soap, and i wanted to test it out, so i melted a little cube of soap and i aded 3 lemons juice the lemon juice was more than the soap, but i realize it has taken forever to dry it just looks gooy right now. Does this mean their should be more soap to whats going in it? And i also read you can either put it in the fridge or outside counter. Thank you. :)
Melt and pour soap can only take a small percentage of additives. Usually those additives will consist of other oils, powders or fragrance. I am not sure what the result will be when using real lemon juice in melt and pour soap base. You have definitely added too much of it and I don't think the soap will harden up for you.
Perhaps next time try adding in lemon zest rather than lemon juice.
Melt and pour soap will harden on it's own right on the counter. You do not need to place it in the fridge.
