THE PROCESS : This chemical in fragrances makes the soap solution harder before it is poured in moulds. The tracing process is demonstrated by simple soap making procedure. This soap making process is not going to be in detail. Lye solution is taken in a beaker and coconut oil is mixed to it. Mix it thoroughly and continuously. Generally, coconut oil takes more time for tracing. Stir it till it becomes thick. When it comes to a consistency, add 25ml of pure Euginol to this mixture. Immediately it becomes hard before pouring it. So to avoid this problem, use fragrance devoid of Euginol. The reason for this tracing of Euginol is because of the presence of more acidic proton in it.Euginol alone is not the culprit there are two or three more chemical compounds which gives sweet smell to the fragrance. These compounds also hardens the soap solution which we will see in the upcoming videos. So avoid using such chemical fragrances to overcome this fast tracing problems.
