Peaks Ocean Shampoo Bar ~ Curdled in the pot!


 Share

Recommended Posts

What's a girl to do?!

I barely had my box open of FO's I received, and decided the Peaks Ocean was going to be it! I had planned for weeks about this shampoo bar I wanted to make, after hearing rave reviews about this FO.

It wasn't meant to be that I made soap tonight! Everything was going wrong, right down to the soap splashing up in my mouth while I was mixing the lye water to the oils.

Anyhow when I added the FO (which I kept room temp) it curldled the soap right away! Shucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can even see the chunks in the soap!

So I did this swirl method I was so eager to try. I think I've got that down pat now, and understand how to do it......I just wish it hadn't curdled.

I'll post pics when I cut it tomorrow. Fingers Crossed!

When I soap peaks ocean , I add the fo to the wamed oils, I put my color in the warmed oils add the lye, it lumps right up, I stick blend the heck out of it and pour. I use it at 1 oz pp of oils. It is the only way I have ever done it cp and it always works. Sorry about you batch. I also never discount the water.

It will probably be fine...same thing happens with Ocean Mist from NG, it is very popular but man I have soap in the pot before the FO even hits the soap. I soap it at low temps, room temp lye, add FO to warmed oils etc but still misbehaves. I have just learned to be on my toes with this one. Oh ya, same with Blooming Tulps from WSP.

Your colors look great. I have never smelled Ocean but I can just imagine:cheesy2:

Peaks Ocean FO did the exact same thing to me. It's a shame too, because it's such a nice "soap" scent! I love the scent, and now just use it in my liquid shampoo because it rices EVERY time I try to use it no matter how I try to manipulate it into making a nice decent soap scent.

Your soap looks good though! I love the color blue you have going on. :)
