Natural Preservative for M&P

naejayApril 8, 2006


I would like to add dried flowers to my soap without the soap turning brown is there a safe way to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like your option is use only the stuff that tolerates the process.

Here is a link that might be useful: Soap FAQ's scroll down for M&P stuff

there isn't a preservative per se that will do this. you have to use dried herbs and flowers and not all can be used. some people use vitamin e to help stop the oxidation, but this does not always work.
