Sodium Lactate for Soap Making!
This 1 oz Sodium Lactate is the same ingredient we use in some of our soaps... now available to you. Using our 1 lb recipe in the soap kit this 1 oz will last you about 2 batches. Generally this is used with silicon molds and recipes that have a lot of liquid ingredients. It is an additive and has nice properties as well as helping the un-molding process in silicone molds but it is not required.
Sodium lactate is a natural humectant, moisturizer and pH regulator. It's a liquid salt derived from the fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets.
Usage Instructions: For cold and hot process soap, add 1 tsp. per pound of oils to the cooled lye water. (1-3% of recipe as well) For lotion, add to the water phase at 0.5 to 4 %.
Sodium lactate hardens cold process soap so you can unmold and enjoy it more quickly. You can also use it in lotion to draw moisture to the skin, or in hot process soap to make it more fluid and smooth.
External Use Only. Do not use in food preparation.
