Why does my Laundry Soap look different?

One of our most FAQs for our Laundry Soap is:

My Laundry Soap is thinner/thicker/darker/lighter/cloudy, is something wrong with it? 

Answer: MamaSuds does not use ANY synthetic ingredients in our products and there are no natural products that make the soap the exact same consistency that we are willing to use. Some companies use calcium chloride or calcium formate which we don't use. Other ingredients that stabilize the color or viscosity are: diethylene glycol, dipropylene glycol, ethanolamine, monoethanolamine, PEGs, propylene glycol, and sodium bisulfite are just a few.

We also don't add dyes to hide color variations.

So what IS happening? Cold weather (as many of you saw this year in particular) is the biggest culprit. If your soap was "gloppy" or cloudy or looked like it needed to be mixed then the cold weather cause a physical reaction. The soap is still in working order, it just looks.... well like snot. The soap will perform exactly the same as your last visually perfect bottle.
