Sodium Lactate is a liquid salt that can be added to cooled lye water in order to speed up unmolding time. Using Sodium Lactate produces harder, longer-lasting bars of cold process soap. Also used in formulations as a humectant, moisturizer, lightening agent or to reduce cracking in soap making.
Derived from natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets, Sodium Lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid. Clear colorless liquid, soluble in water. Add directly into formula. Dosage 1 – 5%.
Usage tip: Simply measure out the Sodium Lactate at 1% to 5% depending on formulation and stir into the cool lye water. Be careful not to use too much; using too much Sodium Lactate will result in a hard, crumbly bar of soap.
