Hi Kevin! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. Because it's a silicone mold, it is flexible and great for unmolding your soap, as seen in this Roman Holiday: Vespa Melt and Pour Tutorial. Also, our silicone molds shouldn't react at all with your soap. There may have been some foreign particles on it to cause that reaction. It may also be gel phase. During gel phase, the soap gets very hot – up to 180 degrees. This can temporarily affect the color of your soap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
