Sodium lactate is an amazing ingredient in all types of skin care. In soaps, it creates a harder bar that lasts longer in the shower. It also helps in making the unmolding of soaps easier from the soap mold. It is truly a must-have ingredient for any soap maker!
Sodium lactate is a liquid salt derived from sugars such as beets and corn. We adore this ingredient and use it in all of our soaps at Nurture!
The recommended usage rate of sodium lactate for cold process soaps is 1 teaspoon per pound of oils. Sodium lactate is also used in hot process soaps toward the end of the cook to create a more fluid soap that easier to get into the soap mold.
When using sodium lactate, add it to your cooled lye water.
This sodium lactate is as good as advertised. It hardens s my soaps up 2× as fast. It helps my soap release a whole half day ahead of time.
I never soap without it!
This is an excellent product that every soapmaker should try. I prefer to use silicone molds and the sodium lactate allows the soap to release easily. I use the recommended amount, 1 tsp. per pound of oils. The price is excellent and shipping is always prompt. Thank you, Nurture Soap!
A must have for soft oils soap recipes
I like using sodium lactate in my soap recipe. It really does make a huge difference in the hardness of my soaps. I no longer have to stress about getting a certain hardness number for calculating new recipes. It’s definitely a must have for recipes that use soft oils. I like that NS sells this product, not all soap suppliers do so i get it shipped to me in 2-3 days along with fragrance and micas. 🤗
Good product good price
Can't beat the price, and it works in my cold process soaps
sodium lactate from nurture makes unmolding my soaps so easy. Love this company. 5 stars as always.
