Super fast trace in goat milk CP soap

I really wanted this scent to work. Like vanilla, I find that a good coconut fragrance is hard to come by. I had read the reviews about people having issues with it. Read BB's description of it and went with their experience with it. I make a very simple goat milk CP soap. So most of my soaps I just add the fragrance oil to my oils. That was not a good idea with this fragrance. That batch ended up in the trash. Second attempt, I mixed everything together first and then added this fragrance oil. I make 2 lbs. batches at a time and was only able to pore half of it before it seized. It might be the goat milk that causes this to seize. I wish the other reviews stated as much. Good scent, but impossible to work with in goats milk.

HI David! I'm so glad you liked our Coconut Cream Fragrance Oil! Though I'm sorry you had trouble soaping with it. In our tests and recipes this scent did not accelerate trace though using additives like goat milk definitely can play a part in that. For more information check out our How to Add Lye to Milk for Cold Process Soap blog post. Oftentimes temperature can play a huge part in acceleration as well so I would recommend trying to lower your temp about 10-15 degrees and see if that does the trick! For more tips I would also recommend reading over our Soap Behaving Badly blog post.

This scent is amazing. It smells very creamy and smooth. I love it in CP soap and it also is amazing in lotion and other things.

almost seased

once i put the coconut cream into my soap it became so thick i did not even attempt to put my colors in i just molded it up i was afraid that if i tried to mix it more it would rune the whole thing i am glad i did i did because as i was filling the 2nd mold and my husband was wrapping the first he said it was already hard set on top i checked and it was at the point i had only seen after 24 hrs of sitting there was no smoothing it out even i do love the smell and will try it again with a smaller batch to see if it was just a flook

Hi Peggy! I'm so glad you love the smell of our Coconut Cream Fragrance Oil. Though I'm sorry you had a hard time working with it in your cold process soap. In our tests and recipes this scent did not accelerate trace or seize as seen in the Coconut Cream Pie Cold Process tutorial. There can be other reasons for acceleration like soaping with high temperatures or additives; for example, soaping with milk. I will email you directly to help troubleshoot!

disappointed

I read the reviews and was super excited to try this. I did a combination of coconut cream and 10x orange. The orange did not rush a trace, but the coconut cream siezed. I had 3# loaf (10" mold) and split it between the two fragrances. I opted for a medium sent on the coconut cream, as I want it to hold it's own with the 10x orange. It set up so quickly, I couldn't do my swirl and instead opted for the glop. On a positive note, it smells amazing and I will use it in my other products, but i doubt I'll try soap again.
