Well I do love to experiment even though sometimes it drives my sister crazy. I can't help it that I like pushing the boundaries when it comes to soaping. Even when I sometimes hear something won't work I keep trying to see if it's possible. Where there is a will there is a way.
I created these 3 recipes and have had a chance to compare them all.
I forgot to include this photo in my original post:
|Yellow and White Palm & Fragrance Free Soap|
The most recent one I made was a yellow scent and palm free soap here:
So far this is my favourite recipe, it has castor oil and shea butter and I love how smooth it feels and the bubblage (like that made up word? I enjoy making up my own words) is great.
Prior to this I made a white fragrance and palm free soap:
For this one I added more then 30% coconut oil. For the majority of my recipes I use a lot less coconut oil because I soap with palm oil. This one is nice and firm and it has a superfat of 5%. I find it works great on my skin but it's not as smooth as the yellow one.
This palm free soap was made over a month ago. It's pink and fragrance free:
By accident I forgot to superfat this soap which is something I have never done. Surprisingly it still feels great and is the same recipe as the white bar. It's nice and firm due to the high coconut oil.
Just last week I made another palm free soap and tried a new recipe this time lowering my coconut amount. I tried a small amount on my hands even though it needs another 4-6 weeks to cure but it feels good on my skin. Will it beat out my favourite yellow soap recipe? Only time will tell.
