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
Thank you so much for this link!!I have read so many soap making books and information on the net and I haven't found a lot of information that is listed on the link you posted. Thanks again!!
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.
