So these spots in the soap. The little white spots caused by the palm oil.. They are not harmful?

Did you test for zap? As long as that is clear then you are fine. I had them all the time when I used palm, but that is not a problem anymore since I don't use palm. Make sure you thoroughly melt all the palm oil and stir, stir, stir before you measure out. Or you can get hydrogenated palm. I think that is the right word. It's too early and I haven't had enough coffee yet.

At what temp did you soap at? Stearic has a higher melt point and if you soap cool it can precipitate out of your soap.

soapbuddy (Irena) would you mind telling me what you use. I really would prefer to leave palm out. not liking it so far. i started soaping cooler (around 110 b/c I was having acceleration issues and it was ticking me off.

Ok so the batch I made w/the stearic acid spots (which I have not zap tested - am scared to) I used almond oil, castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil. i did not list them in order of amounts just the order that bramble berry's soap calc printed out.

My general recipe is olive, coconut, and avocado. I occasionally add shea butter or cocoa butter but not very often.

I've used palm in all the batches I've made so far, and I soap cool (80-85) BUT all the batches I've made have had goat milk in them, so I'm sure they heat up a little after I mix the lye/liquid with the oils. Is it the heat that's stopping the spots from happening, or is it because I use the palm shortening (the spectrum stuff I buy at the health food store) instead of true palm oil? I always assumed it was the same thing, because the only listed ingredient is palm oil.
