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
INCI: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis guineensis (Palm) Oil, Brassica Napus (Canola) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Vitmain E Oil
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Mike! You can definitely use our Lots of Lather Quick Mix in a Hot Process (oven process) recipe. Just use this mix instead of your normal oils. See an example of oven process in our Hot Process Series: Oven Process Layers tutorial. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

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!

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,
