Palm Free Soap
(Ballarat Victoria Australia)
I just wanted everyone to know that you can make a lovely hard soap without using any Palm Oil. Check out www.orangutan.org.au. to see why.
I have been making soap privately and commercially for 10 years and I wanted to raise awareness of this issue. My computer wouldn't download the instructional videos so you may already have this covered; my apologies if so.
A good recipe is as follows:
50% Olive Oil (pomace seems to trace quicker and make a nice hard soap)
30% Coconut Oil
10% Shea Butter
5% Cocoa butter
5% Castor Oil
This recipe creates a really nice lather and a really creamy soap. It traces fairly fast so be prepared, don't over mix.
Run it through a lye calculator.
Suggested EO Blend:
3 parts Lavender
2 parts May Chang
1 part Rosemary
