[soap #9]初秋阳光皂

觊觎红棕榈漂亮的颜色很久了,决定打一锅橙黄色的皂皂。配方中和了前田的海边阳光皂和冬日阳光皂,姑且叫做初秋阳光皂吧~20%棕榈核,30%红棕榈,40%橄榄油和10%榛果油,轻t后加了一小勺蜂蜜。

其实两天前尝试了海边阳光皂,结果悲催的经历人生第一次油水分离。首先,这个配方真的是秒T啊泪!碱倒下去就看到量杯中央开始变色。。。有没有这么悲催!我使劲的搅了几下,看到所有皂液都是一个颜色的赶快入模,结果倒进去就发现怎么边缘一直有透明液体在飘,划拉了两下居然越来越多。我当时赶快把皂液又倒出来再搅,这时候越T越厚,抱着几乎崩溃的心情再入模,不料一入模就浮出透明液体。不死心再倒出来搅,最终没有成功,扔掉了事。

有了一次失败的经验,今天特地慢慢的倒碱入油,边倒边搅,还是秒T了,不过这次是轻T。然后加了蜂蜜和FO,入模。悲催的是又出现小滴的无色液体。于是又倒出来重搅,搅了很久,T得很厚了才没有油水分离的痕迹,心惊胆战的入模,还特意入烤箱保温。到晚上一看,皂表面有些褐色的水珠,应该是出汗了(加了蜂蜜的原因?)哎下次还是减少红棕榈的比例吧,用完手上的就不再买。这油太可怕啦。
