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.Ingredients:Botanical Name: Propanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-, monosodium saltCommon Name: Sodium Lactate
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Christi! It looks like you used less than the recommended amount of Sodium Lactate so that would not have caused your soap's crumbliness. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Carolyn! I'm sorry to hear you had troubles using this product. We haven't experienced this when using our Sodium Lactate. I will email you personally to learn more about why this might have happened.
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Noelia! I'm so glad you love our Sodium Lactate! Though, Sodium Lactate and Lactic Acid are not the same. Sodium Lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid. They would not achieve the same results in your soap. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
