Sodium Lactate - Sodium Lactate is a liquid salt that is naturally derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets. In food, Sodium Lactate may be used as a preservative, acting as an inhibitor of bacteria growth. In CP soap, Sodium Lactate helps to produce a harder bar of soap that lasts longer in the shower. Because Sodium Lactate is a salt, it is a natural humectant, providing moisture. This makes it a great additive to lotions, typically replacing glycerin in the recipe.
Usage rate: .5% - 4%, or 1 tsp per pound of oils.
Usage Instructions: Add Sodium Lactate to your water phase (cooled Lye water) when making Cold Process Soap.
