Sodium Lactate likely one of the most useful ingredients you never knew you needed!
A liquid salt, Sodium Lactate is added to lye water to hasten the drying and hardening process and create a strong, luxurious lather. The addition of this product results in harder, longer-lasting bars of soap that dries quicker and unmoulds with ease, ensuring a perfect, unblemished result that cuts cleanly every single time. Heirloom's Sodium Lactate is perfect for soft oil soap, palm-free soap and Castile soap, preserving structural integrity, ensuring a clean appearance and reducing cure time. Use at a rate of 2-5% for the perfect amount.
Sodium Lactate is also a wonderful addition to lotions and creams. What a thicker, velvety-soft product that provides deeper, long lasting hydration? Add Sodium Lactate! Our Sodium Lactate additionally reduces the stickiness of glycerine-heavy recipes. A little goes a long way: use at 1-3% of the total recipe.
This product is derived from corn syrup using non genetically modified product. This is the standard 60% product required by most recipies.
