Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Yellow

Lye Water Temperature 110ºF (43.3°C)
Oil Temperature 120ºF (48.9°C)

We did experience a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. The batter emulsified quickly and within seconds of stick blending reached a medium trace. After 24 hours, we observed glycerin rivers had formed in the bars and the soap had almost reached a full gel. The soap had a pale yellow color and the scent was strong and true to the out of the bottle character. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light yellow color and the scent was a little lighter but remained true. Due to the acceleration of the fragrance, it would be ideal to work at lower temperatures and hand stir in the fragrance after adding any desired colors.

Not friendly for CP

This made my CP soap seize in less than 5 minutes . Soaping the same process and at less than 115 degrees F. The smell is wonderful. Not only did it seize terribly but I have FO coming out of my soap. I love CS scents but this is a no go unless I soap at a lower % and work very fast .

We are SO in love with this scent! It's a very clean & fresh fragrance that blends wonderfully with other floral fragrances. The cotton aspect of this fragrance is wonderfully light and truly perfect! We did notice in testing candles that the hot throw is tricky. We were, however, able to up the FO ratio to just the right amount and it works!

Great Clean Scent

This has great cold and hot throw in coconut soy wax and has been a popular candle for my shop. I also tried this in cold process soap and took note of the acceleration in soap. I was able to work a 3 color swirl, without feeling the need to rush. I compensated by adding extra water to my lye solution. Unfortunately, I did get some glycerin rivers, but it’s a trade off. The scent holds in soap very well and has been a popular spring/summer item. It does discolor a bit and I wish I had used a little more titanium dioxide to compensate.

I absolutely LOVE this scent! The fresh and clean combination is perfect! I find this scent great by itself for my candles.

Smells very soapy, it’s nice. But I would try using a smaller percentage in my 464 candle next time. Something less that 6% or blending it as other suggest.

Beautiful scent, works very well in 464

This scent works well in 464, and has excellent hot and cold throw. Try adding it to compatible scents with a weaker hot throw and the results will amaze you! This is a permanent add to our collection!

Not sure what I was expecting

Honestly not sure what I was expecting. It's a fine scent, but heavily on the soapy side. I bought this to use for candles so a little disappointing.

Too strong

Beautiful FO - Blend to make the best airy scents

Love this one so much — anytime a candle needs to be balanced with some ozone, this is my go-to-gal. She’s got an even better HT than the old cotton blossom FO she replaced. Love this FO!

CP soap, I can't work with this

I know the listing says this fragrance causes moderate acceleration, but there was nothing moderate about it. My soap seized so fast I had to throw it out because it turned into chunky garbage.

It smells really nice and is probably great for candles, which is why I gave it 2 stars and not 1, but I'm really disappointed I can't use it for what I wanted it for.
