Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Tammy! I'm so glad your first cold process experience went so well with our Beginner's Cold Process Kit! Though, I'm sorry you weren't happy with the results after using your soap. The recipe include with this kit is basic 30, 30, 30, 10 recipe with 30% Coconut Oil, an oil with high cleansing abilities. High cleansing oils do an incredible job cleaning but in doing so, may also wash away some of your skin's naturally moisturizing oils. It's easy to solve; cut back on the Coconut and Palm Oil and increase skin loving oils like Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Hempseed Oil, Rice Bran Oil or your favorite butters. Finally, you can increase your superfat from the normal 5% to a bit higher, like 7%.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Debbie! I'm so glad you though our Beginner's Cold Process Kit was a great start and your soap turned out amazing! The E-Book would have been added to your digital goods under your account with us. If you double the recipe it will be a about a pound too large for the 10" Silicone Loaf Mold. The best way to resize a batch of soap is to run the recipe as is through our Handy Dandy Lye Calculator then Resize the batch by changing the oil weight. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Jessica! I'm so glad you like the kit! If you have any spills, 99% isopropyl alcohol is great for cleaning. Just spritz a little on your scale and wipe it off with a rag. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
