This is actually the part 1 of total 3 parts experiment. Since I love soaperstar's Water Lily so much, I came up with my own interpretation of her recipe. I also want to prove which butter, cocoa, shea, or mango is more superior in soap making. This is like two birds killed by one stone kind of deal. This first one is made with cocoa butter, the way soaperstar intended, scented by Cherry Blossom fragrance oil, and colored with shades of pinks!
Well, I stick blended it to very light trace, then Cherry Blossom went it... accelerated and riced a little on me. Totally unexpected, because the website says this fragrance oil behaves well in cold process soap! What happened here?! Bye bye my planned ITP (in the pot) and ITM (in the mold) combo swirl... maybe see you next time????
Color inspiration from Design Seeds: pinked
Next batch will be the same recipe but substituting cocoa butter with the same amount of shea butter.
