In order to conserve the 1 oz I have per mystery fragrance oil to use in more tests, I pulled out my little 2" round cupcake silicone cups for this testing. Normally I do non-gel CP. But I do always wonder if gelling the soap makes any difference in fragrance strength, morphing & discoloring. To solve my own mystery question I decided to do both. I'm using 5% super fat and 5% fragrance rate as usual.
I used teddy bear cupcake mold (isn't it cute?!) as control to compare.
What did I tell ya! Instant tan! It's tan, photo is not showing true color.
As expected, no color change.
I was not expecting my top choice to turn lemony yellow!
Surprisingly it only turned beige, I thought it was going to be worse.
You probably wonder, what happened to #7 & #8?! ... oops... Test round 1 didn't go that smoothly... I made boo boos... let's not go there. Anyway, ended up not having enough. Can't call it soap opera if it's without drama!!
Oh BTW, another cup each identical now sitting in my oven being "cooked" to force gel.
