Transparent soap with 40% TFM possible?
Hi all.I am trying to make transparent soap with 40% TFM.Ingredients : Stearic acid, lauric acid, castor oil, NaOH, water, propylene glycol, sles 70%, capb, peg 400, triethanolamine.Process: I add the sles to the oil phase, heat it and add hot lye solution. After saponification, i add the solvents one by one, keep stirring for 10-15 minutes with constant heating. The solution now is transparent. I pour it in the mold. When it cools down, it gets cloudy.. not completely opaque. The edges are clear.Where am i going wrong? Should i be using different solvents? Should my process be different? Please help!
