 Post subject: Oils & Photosensitive

Hi! I am new to soap making! Most of the soaps I would like to make use oils from the Citrus Family. However, I am very concerned about the photosensitive subject.

I contacted the manufacturer of the oils I use and I was told this is not a concern because the oils wash off. However, I am reading a book about making soap and it says to use the same precaution as using the oils. (Where you would wait 12 hours before exposing the applied area to sunlight.)

Does anyone with longer experience have any thoughts on this?

Thanks so much!

Soap IS a wash off product, where photosensitivity would not be an issue. It's when a photosensitive oil stays on the skin like in a lotion or a cream.

None of the poster's other posts make sense. I contacted admin, but have not heard back.
