Lovely but it stuck

I thought this mold was beautiful. However, after letting the soap set for a week it stuck to the mold a little bit. It only stuck just enough to slightly disfigure the sun and moon. Any advice on how to prevent this? If it didn't stick it would have been a five star soap, but as it is I can't sell it. It is my first time using a mold with designs though.

Hi DeAnna! I'm glad you like the design on the mold! If you're making cold process soap, it can take up to two weeks to unmold. To speed this process up, you can add more hard oils to your recipe, like coconut or palm oil. Adding 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water can speed this process up as well. You can read more in the Sunday Night Spotlight: Sodium Lactate post. Putting your mold in the freezer for about 15 minutes helps as well. That will ensure your soap comes out with all the beautiful details intact. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
