Have you ever gotten into a situation where you accidentally (or not) created a soap that's surprisingly great and would love to recreate it again and again but just can't?!
I made this soap inspired by a color palette from Design Seeds:
I really like this vibrant happy summer color combination in a white soap base. Unfortunately the yellow color faded to almost nothing within 2 days. Here's my previous post about color fading: Disappointing Color Fading
It looked like this 2 days later:
Now, I really, really want to recreate this! Give my yellow back! Without the yellow, the soap just doesn't look the same! Without knowing exactly why the yellow faded so fast, either the colorant or the fragrance, I decided to use a different scent AND a different yellow, I am NOT doing this the 3rd time!
Four weeks later, all colors settled a little, not as neon but didn't fade! Thank goodness there's not 3rd time! The faded 1st batch still smells great and good soap but too bad the look is not up to part, it'll go to the unsellable pile for personal use or donation.
