Description 

The Bramble Berry Quick Mix Oils are an easy way for you to save time weighing and blending oils when making cold process or hot process soap. We do the work for you. And you have consistent and reliable results everytime.

The Lots of Lather Quick Mix is comprised of Coconut, Palm Oil, Canola Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil and Vitamin E. It produces an extremely hard bar that has large bubbles with good stability. The resulting soap rinses away cleanly in the shower. Because of the lathering properties, this recipe does best at a 7% superfat or below. With the purchase of Lots of Lather Quick Mix you also receive a PDF that includes information on lye and water amounts.

NOTE: While it is possible to add extra butters or oils to our Quick Mixes, it may result in reduced lather or a shorter shelflife due to

Ingredients:

How about Goats Milk?
However, I was wondering if you could substitute the water for liquid goats milk that has been frozen. In otherwords could you make a goats ilke soap with this? And if so what would be the ounces for the goats milk and lye for the 33 oz?

Hi Kathlene! You can definitely substitute frozen goat's milk for your water amount with our Lots of Lather Quick Mix!  For 33 oz of this quick mix with a 5% superfat you would use 4.8 oz Lye and 10.9 oz liquid (water or goat's milk). For future recipes you can use the Quick Mix Calculator right on this product page or our Handy Dandy Lye Calculator. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Pretty nice
I love how this mix will trace nicely with the lye water; only issue I've so far encountered is removing from any molds - plastic or silicon. I'll leave the soap in the molds for a long time (1 day to 3), and when I go to remove it, it's still too soft or breaking away in the corner edges. Some manage to come free completely, but it's only after freezing it for thirty mins. I'm not sure why it's struggling so much, but I love this mix a lot! I do recommend it to soapers, and it's a great product.

Hi Wendy! I'm glad you enjoy this mix! in general, we recommend leaving soap in the mold for three to four days. If you have a softer bar of soap, you can leave it in the mold longer - up to a week or so. That should help it slide out a little easier! Also, if you want to unmold your soap earlier, you can use Sodium Lactate. We recommend adding about 1 tsp per pound of oils to your cooled lye water. You can also do a hot gel phase for your soap, or water discount at 10%. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot this, so look out for my email!

Simple and Easy!
Bought 35lbs for the first time using it, and absolutely loved it. Each time I got a consistent batter, I was able to do some basic swirls with it too! I'm going to keep buying this for sure! I have mango butter I need to use, and I have just this mix. How would I figure out the lye and water amount with the extra mango butter? Other than that love this product!

Acceptable
I purchased this quick mix to see how I felt about making soap before deciding to make my own recipes. It was great as a test run and the bars are nice and hard even though they aren't even completely cured. They are incredibly ashy though. I blended well. Poured into individual silicone molds. Sprayed with isopropyl alcohol. Everything you are supposed to do... Yet the entire outside of every bar is WHITE and the centers are brown due to discoloration from the Dragon's Blood fragrance, which I wanted to happen throughout the entire bar. Likely will not purchase again. This happened both times I used this product.

Hi Renee! I'm glad that you enjoyed this mix! We use this quick mix quite frequently, and have not experienced this problem. The primary cause of soda ash on soap is the temperature. Usually soda ash occurs when you soap cool, around 100 degrees. Soaping a little bit hotter will help! Decreasing water by 10% will also help with soda ash. Luckily, soda ash is easy to remove. Steaming your soap is a great way to get rid of soda ash. You may find this blog post, Explaining and Preventing Soda Ash helpful!
