What stage do i add the fresh aloe vera gel in hp soap
Hi every one i have been googling this question all i get is melt and pour formulas, The soap recipe i am working with has palm stearin ,coconut and olive oil doing it in a double boiler .. i'm not sure that at what stage should i add the fresh aloe vera gel should i mix it with the lye or at the end when i add the perfume , do i have to discount the water ratio and what about rancidity if i use aloe vera , Thank you all the way from pakistan
You would discount the water by the amount of fresh aloe vera you are using. Add the gel once the soap reaches a thin trace. Then proceed with the hot process portion of the recipe as normal.
