Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Yellow

Lye Water Temperature 112ºF (44.4°C)
Oil Temperature 102ºF (38.9°C)

We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration and a slight amount of separation initially. We found it difficult to bring the water and oils to an emulsion, each time we stopped the stick blender we could see the oils and water separate. Eventually they came together and held which brought the batter to a medium trace. The batter stayed workable enough to pour smoothly into the mold without any additional thickening. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had only reached a partial gel and there was a slight yellow discoloration. The scent was strong and had a crisp freshness. After 30 days, a very light yellow discoloration was observed, which could be easily covered by titanium dioxide or other colorants. The scent had mellowed but remained strong and crisp. It would be ideal to incorporate the color in the batter first, then add fragrance last.

This fragrance was the first successful candle I accomplished. I use 464 and it has perfect cold and Hot throw. Will use this fragrance for one of my candle lines.

Great Scent

I favor making strongly scented candles and this one does very well. Candle Science does a better job with their Clean Cotton compared to other companies. If you are looking for a clean-smelling candle, give this a try.

Smells like Laundry
Christie Jean-Pierre 2023-10-17

This smells like laundry. I use it on Virgin Coconut Soy Wax. It has a great cold throw but I haven't used it on hot throw as of yet.

Cotton Sky
Barbara Schmidgal Sea Oats Soap 2023-03-27

I sell to an aquarium and the buyer said, "Don't ever get rid of this beautiful fragrance". I love the cotton blossoms in this fragrance. Men like it too. It's fresh, clean and revitalizing with a mixed bouquet of floral and tangy notes.
