Life of a Glycerin River
As a soap maker dealing with glycerin rivers are very frustrating and unpredictable. We try our hardest to avoid them.
What are glycerin rivers in cold process soap? It is the crackling effect and in my own experience the migration or separation of color that leaves a translucent effect in the bar. Why would we try so hard to avoid these? Well they have a mind of their own. You get them when you don’t want them and don’t get them when you do want them. All, some, or none at all!
