Sounds a lot like soap...

..as you describe when the mix isn't right, what happens may not be what's expected.

I left a batch of shave soap about 5-10% short on oils once - not on purpose. I figured that it wouldn't have the margin oil in it (having a little bit extra to make sure all of the lye is converted - better to have a little extra oil than a little extra lye), but I was wrong. It was brisk, shall we say - with some unconverted lye in the soap.

I ended up using it as bath soap to avoid just throwing it away, but it had some extra sting vs. any other soap I've ever used.
