Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Shelly! I'm sorry this product was giving you trouble in your cold process soap. In our tests and recipes we found the Palm Kernel Flakes help to make a beautiful hard bar of soap as evidenced in the Tiger Stripe "Hanger" Swirl Tutorial. It's important that the Palm Kernel Flakes are completely melted before adding to your other oils when making cold process soap. If it is not completely melted your soap can have pockets of oil, while the rest of it is lye heavy! I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Hi Mary! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. Because they are in flake form, they will have a higher melting point than oils. Also, they will accelerate trace. However, we've found they work well when used at 15% or less in your recipe, as shown in this Tiger Stripe "Hanger" Swirl Tutorial. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
