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: 1 tsp per pound of oils in Cold Process Soap, 0.5% - 4% in LotionUsage 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
I have never used sodium lactate because I have never had issues getting my soap out of the mold until I got the vertical wood mold with the plastic pieces that must be twisted off the soap. I hated that mold because I always had to cut the soap out. I tried sodium lactate and the soap came out of that mold exactly the way it was supposed to. The soap also has a very very smooth as glass feel.
I love goats milk soap, but they always turn out softer than other soap unless I hot process. I love the creamy white bars, so prefer not to use heat. Now my bars are much harder and easier to unmold and cut! Thanks BB for great products at low prices!
I love the amount for the price. Love how it helps with fluidity when making my hot process soaps.
Love this! Easier to work with than stearin acid and makes a nice hard bar!
Is this recommended to use in rebatch soap making as well???
